The heart of the major experience is developing expertise in a field of study in which you are passionately interested. You and your adviser—who is a faculty member from your major department—work together to design an academic path tailored to your enthusiasms. That then takes you from foundation-building introductory courses all the way to the Senior Capstone Project.

In addition, your major is the primary pathway through the rest of Arcadia’s Undergraduate Curriculum. Courses you take in your chosen major also fulfill some of the required Integrative Learning Experiences, Areas of Inquiry, and Intellectual Practices, so your major plan provides a framework for those educational goals you will achieve in courses outside your major.
