Cluster Electives

A non-major cluster is a grouping of classes that are related or thematic, like pre-law, business, analytics, or pre-health. The purpose of the cluster is to give students a secondary area of specialization and to provide additional depth to the undergraduate program. A non-major cluster can combine classes from the same department or from different departments. The only requirement is that the classes be related. Classes used towards a minor, certificate, or second major can count towards a cluster. More information is available in the course catalog.
