Students work with faculty advisors to devise self-designed majors. Coursework in the major builds upon students’ experiences in the general education curriculum while providing students with pathways to deepen their knowledge or further develop their passion in a particular area of study.

Students interested in admission to dental, medical, veterinary, or pharmacy school are advised to pursue the Bachelor of Science degree. While students interested in this track will complete a degree heavy with coursework in biology, they must also develop a broad understanding of mathematics, chemistry, and general physics in order to be most successful.
