Undergraduate Majors and Minors

Choose Your Path

The College of Arts and Sciences offers students dozens of majors and minors. Ranging from the arts to the humanities to the natural and social sciences, many programs incorporate an interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary curriculum.

As part of a Santa Clara education, students are required to complete the core curriculum in addition to the requirements set by their chosen area of study. Students often choose to double major or supplement their major with a minor(s). Academic and peer advisors are available to help navigate the process of selecting, adding, or changing majors and minors.
