Majors and Minors
The Mount offers more than 40 majors, minors, concentrations, interdisciplinary and special programs. All students complete the Veritas Program, supplementing the other portion of the curriculum with a chosen major and minor.
Many courses of study cross into different areas of interest, there is even an option to customize an interdisciplinary major blending your own interests. Students may pursue a pre-professional focus, military science course, or choose a number of dual-degree programs and special pre-med advising for careers in the health professions. Highly motivated individuals also have the option to complete their undergraduate degree in three years.
