The college also offers a selection of alternative programs for students who are highly motivated and who have a record of high scholarly achievement. Students may obtain information concerning any one of several departmental honors tracks from the participating department. These programs generally allow an accelerated exposure to higher education, thereby broadening the experience of the student.

All majors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, along with University and general education requirements, lead to a bachelor’s degree. Requirements for each major are listed under the appropriate department. (Students wishing to emphasize a broad study in arts and letters, science, or social science may do so by majoring in liberal studies. For these options see Interdisciplinary Studies: Arts and Letters, Social Science.)
