ACADEMIC PROGRAMS

A program is a course of study designed by faculty members to focus on a particular area of knowledge or a particular approach to an area. Each program establishes requirements for Moderation, course work, and Senior projects; each selects from the courses offered at the College those courses it considers required, recommended, and related to its particular focus. Every student is required to declare a major in a primary program by the end of his or her sophomore year in order to moderate from the Lower College to the Upper College and to become a candidate for the Bachelor of Arts degree. Students can also declare a secondary program of study [indicated by (S) below]. which must be taken in conjunction with a primary program.
