Academic Programs

Our curriculum is designed to prepare students for the leadership roles they will assume in all areas of life.
Choosing a major and earning a degree in that field is the central part of your education—but that's not the only thing we offer! Develop your knowledge by adding on a minor (or two), prepare for your career through pre-professional programs in law or health sciences, earn your teaching certification, or expand your experience through partnerships with nearby colleges and universities.
