The Major allows students to focus on an area of interest and structure their learning in a way that engages their critical inquiry skills and develops their passion for self-guided discovery. Each student is a member of a cohort of fellow students whom they support and challenge under the guidance of a dedicated faculty member who provides structure, guidance, and mentorship throughout the whole program.
On campus, students have access to a wide range of facilities including Fayfield Hall, our state-of-the-art STEM Center, and the weCreate Center, which houses nine studios to provide students access to software such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and FinalCut Pro. Students in The Major will travel beyond the Arch to complete their Center of Excellence experience as well, immersing themselves in locales as varied as their interests.
