Core Concentration

The Core Concentration involves a five-course exploration of one liberal arts discipline or one interdisciplinary studies area unrelated to the major. This requirement ensures that students graduate with significant knowledge of at least two fields, that of the major and that of the Core Concentration.

Most CORE Concentrations may be expanded to a minor or double major by taking additional courses.
