Academic Centers


Academic Centers

The five academic centers house groups of related fields of study. Students can choose a traditional major, or they can shape their education by combining different fields of study into a double major or interdisciplinary major. Within the centers, students also take courses, unrelated to their major or minor, that provide multiple perspectives and insights into their areas of academic interest. These center exploration courses help students dive into the big questions related to the wider field each center represents.
