Students can ask meaningful questions and pursue their passions in a range of fields from anthropology to theology. Because the requirements are flexible, students can take classes across disciplines to find a major they love or synthesize ideas to create knowledge. With opportunities to learn languages, study abroad, do an internship, and write a senior thesis, the possibilities are endless.
