The Undergraduate Handbook provides detailed information about the major, departmental policies, facilities, scholarship opportunities, and a variety of other information relevant to majors and minors.


Students can navigate through the major using a Pathway. Pathways are suggested groupings of courses that reflect professional concentrations.

You can use these pathways to help you build a curriculum that addresses your specific areas of interest and goals.

The courses listed in the Pathways 2018 document are recommendations to guide your course selection. You can also design your own pathway!
