    Our academic program is built on three strong pillars:

    Majors Wheel GraphThe College Core

    Core courses provide a broad foundation for your future, no matter what major you choose. With classes ranging from writing to wellness to financial literacy, the College Core introduces you to college life and gives you the tools you’ll need to succeed.

    Your Major

    Whether you major in English or history, environmental sciences or sociology, you’ll develop a strong base of knowledge in your field through a variety of major-specific classes.

    Elective Courses

    Electives give you the opportunity to explore an area of interest beyond your major. A business major might take a studio art class, for instance, while a dance student might explore an interest in American history. Along the way, you expand your knowledge base and discover more about the world.

  • Today in America

  • My favorite thing about Dean was the support system that guided me each day. The faculty and staff were constantly available for guidance, motivation and to share their knowledge. The friends and peers I met taught me each day and have shaped the person I am today.
