Recommendations by Major

University faculty, staff and advisers worked together to recommend some examples of pathway experiences that relate to what you are studying in the classroom. Look for your major under your college or school and remember, these are examples and options, NOT requirements.

These recommendations are intended to help you make the most of your education by providing examples of experiences that illustrate how within and beyond the classroom experiences relate to one another. Can't find your major or area of interest below? Contact an advisor in your major program.
