There are many opportunities throughout the year for students to experience learning in their disciplines and faculty to expand their scholarship. These experiences offer a wide diversity of interests and talents.

Some examples include:

Our Programs

Interdisciplinary Minors

Interdisciplinary Minors complement majors by allowing students to explore an interest as well as delve further into broader subject matter.

For example, a student majoring in Women and Gender Studies who wants to work in community outreach for women's shelters might benefit from choosing a minor in Leadership, Justice and Peace Studies, or Pre-Law.
