Designed to be flexible and accommodating to individual student interests, we offer a wider range of diversity than most departments our size throughout the country. We encourage students to be creative and widen their boundaries as we work in tandem with them to prepare them for graduate school and the job market.
We also offer a 4+1 program in which students earn a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in five years, making a master’s more affordable and attainable.
