Undergraduate Concentrations

Undergraduate Concentrations

Electives available in a student’s program provide opportunities to pursue new or deepen previous studies according to the student’s inclinations. They are not required.

A "concentration" is a set of courses that enables students to use electives to achieve disciplined study in an area short of a major.

Generally, concentrations are a coherent set of four to six courses in areas appropriate to liberal arts education but not available as an undergraduate major; composed of courses that already exist at the university; have a specific faculty advisor; and are identified as a concentration in the catalog and on the transcript.

At least three courses (9 credit hours), in any concentration must be at the advanced level; a grade of at least C- must be earned. In certain cases, courses may be double-counted. 

Undergraduate concentrations include:

Accounting

American Politics

Applied Mathematics

Applied Physics

Art - Art History
