Undergraduate Majors



Degree: A degree is an academic credential awarded to students upon successful completion of a prescribed course of study in a specific field or discipline. It signifies that the student has met the requirements set forth by the institution, which typically include completing a certain number of credit hours and specific courses.
Major: A major is a specific area of academic focus that a student chooses to specialize in during their studies. It typically involves completing a set of required courses and sometimes electives related to that field of study. 
Minor: A minor is a secondary area of academic study that complements a student's major field of study. It typically requires fewer courses than a major and allows students to explore an additional area of interest. While minors are not always required for graduation, they provide students with the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in a different subject area, enhancing their academic experience and potentially broadening their career prospects.
Concentration: A concentration  is a specialized focus within a major. It allows students to tailor their academic studies to a specific area of interest or career goal. Concentrations typically consist of a set of courses related to a particular subject or theme within the broader scope of the major. Some majors require concentration while it is optional in other majors.
