Majors & Minors

We're excited to announce the combination of the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) and the School of Fine Arts. Now, under one umbrella, students choose from nearly 40 majors, 33 minors, and three certificate programs that combine liberal arts, social sciences, visual arts, and performance art.
 
A liberal arts degree challenges students to think beyond their experience, culture, and what they know to experience personal growth.

ADVISING

Advising is an important part of the commitment to a quality undergraduate experience for students. All students are assigned to a professional or faculty advisor, and the CLA Advising & Academic Services office facilitates learning, development, and success through  academic guidance, the registration process, and any other concerns or academic difficulties.
