Most students will major in one or two of the programs already offered by the college, but if you’re interested in something special—something that can only be achieved by combining several programs into one major that’s still doable in four years—we’ll work with you to design a student-initiated major (SIM).
Recent students have designed SIMs in advertising, ancient history, creative studies, engineering science, international business, ministry to youth with disabilities, and missiology.
SIMs require the approval of your academic adviser and the college’s Academic Affairs Committee. They demonstrate to future employers that you are self-aware, creative and have an entrepreneurial spirit.
In addition to our top-5 U.S. News & World Report ranking, we’ve received national recognition for excellent academics, student volunteerism, affordability, conservation and other achievements. Learn more
