Undergraduate Studies


Every undergraduate must complete the requirements of a major. While most students complete authorized clusters to complement their majors (see clusters for more details), students may, in addition to their major, select one or more minors and a second major, and may choose to complete one of the interdepartmental certificate programs noted below.

The College Center for Advising Services can provide more detailed information regarding the process students use to declare majors, minors, and certificates.
