Programs of Study
Our degree programs have three parts. You will take courses in general education to help you develop the ability to think critically, to appreciate cultures other than your own, to write clearly and persuasively, and to contribute to society. Courses in your major will assist you in mastering the area you have chosen to pursue in depth. Elective courses are free choices in areas in which you have an interest, or courses which can strengthen your major program.
