41 majors, 28 interdisciplinary minors, and over 900 courses to help you craft exactly the education you’re looking for.

If you want an even more independent course, we’ll help you create your own student-designed major. About 15 percent of our students pursue a double major and an additional 25 percent major in an interdisciplinary field (such as neuroscience, international studies, environmental science, or public policy and law). So apply your own creative thinking, and make your education as interesting as you are.

In order to help students choose appropriate entry-level courses for select majors, please refer to this list based on recommendations from the academic department chairs.
