Majors & Minors

The role of undergraduate majors in the curriculum is to ensure that all graduates have experienced the challenges and rewards of studying an academic discipline or interdisciplinary subject in considerable depth. With the help of an advisor, each undergraduate student chooses and completes one major of between 9 and 18 courses. Some undergraduate students elect to double-major, or to supplement their major with a minor in a second field of strong personal interest. Post-baccalaureate students looking for graduate degrees, options, and certificates will find those offerings in the far right column by discipline.
