Students at UAM-CUSE can pursue a double-major, concentration, or minor while working towards their bachelor’s degree in any number of possible combinations!
A Major is the principal field of study, requiring at least 31 credits in the specialty, beyond the common and professional core courses. With the Provost’s approval, students may be allowed to earn two degrees simultaneously! Students who wish to earn a double-major must complete all 300 and 400 level classes required for that degree.
A Concentration is a special emphasis within the major, requiring at least 24 credit-hours in that area. For example, within the International Development major, the student may concentrate in Political Economy, Environmental Issues, Public Policy, Tourism Development, or Education. Students can work on their concentration throughout their course of studies.
A Minor is a secondary area of specialized study which may be outside of one’s major and requires at least 18 credits in that specialty. There are plenty of options from which students can choose according to their interests! Students can work on their minor during their career studies or in their last semester at UAM-CUSE.
