Undergraduate Programs

Here, students complete one major and three minors — one from each of four areas of study we call Peaks. Instead of checking off general requirements, you'll design a unique plan based on your interests and get a broad liberal arts education in the process.

Why PEAK instead of the typical college curriculum?

College students today need to explore, discover and develop in multiple areas to succeed in a changing job market. PEAK expands academic opportunities and frees students from the curricular restrictions common at other colleges and universities. 

Our faculty devised PEAK as an innovative way to combine liberal arts education with specialization in several fields. Students work with advisors to design a personalized curriculum that builds knowledge in each of the academic peaks.

Peak Profile

"I’ve changed majors and minors so many times, but PEAK allowed me to explore my sense of discovery. I fell in love with the subjects I chose and took the classes I was most passionate about."
