School of Arts and Sciences

As an undergraduate in the School of Arts and Sciences, you can pick from among 43 majors and 51 minors in the sciences, social sciences, humanities and creative arts. No need to settle on just one major, or even a major and a minor. Almost half our students double major and some even minor in a third discipline.
