A “major” is an academic discipline in which the College grants a degree. The requirements for a degree generally include 18-44 hours in the major academic discipline.
A “concentration” is one of two or more options available for a particular major. Each concentration has its own program of study.
A “program of study” is a list of requirements for a degree in a particular major. The courses required include general education courses required of all students at the College, courses in the major academic discipline, and other courses related to the major. The total number of credits required for the degree is listed at the end of the program of study and ranges from 128 to 132 semester credit hours.
A “minor” in an academic discipline requires successful completion of 12-15 semester credit hours, as prescribed by the department in which the academic discipline is located.
