    Majors and Minors

  • At Capital, we partner with you to forge a focused path to your future—a pathway that begins with your dreams and culminates with you becoming the person and the professional you want to be. Each of our 60 majors and 51 minors offers a distinct focus, yet you will find endless interconnections between your chosen discipline and related—or seemingly unrelated—areas of study.

    Broad knowledge. Focused skills. Blurred lines.

    From the beginning, your education will be infused with critical thinking and problem solving — first through broad-based learning in our liberal arts core that will make you a well-rounded, educated citizen, and then through focused study in your major. But it gets even better. You’ll be focused on your major, but not limited by it. 

    At Capital, we believe in learning “across the disciplines,” which means you’ll also have lots of exciting opportunities to work and communicate across areas of study different from your, but still related. Simplifying complexities and tackling challenges from multiple angles. Whatever your major, a Capital education represents learning at its best.

    For those who want a fast track to their career, our combined bachelor's to master's degree programs, like our new 3+3 Bachelor's to Juris Doctor program, help motivated students earn undergraduate and graduate degrees at a faster pace.

    Explore. Find your passion.

    Maybe you haven’t decided on a major. Maybe, just maybe, the dream hasn’t yet crystallized and pointed you toward a specific academic pathway. Maybe right now, it’s just an idea. That’s not a problem.

    Many students enroll in college undecided about their major, and two of every three change their major at least once. During your first year, you will have the opportunity to “taste test” courses from many departments, participate in countless campus and community activities, and discuss options with your advisor—all of which will help you decide on the path that is right for you.

    • Making a Major Impact With Your Minor

      We know an extra motivated student when we see one. Always inquisitive. Always engaged.

      Adding a minor means more work. It's true. But for those who aspire to exceed the status quo, your major might not be enough. That's why we have over 50 minors to help fill that intellectual void and complement your major course of study. 

      Or perhaps you have a completely unrelated area of interest and want to explore what another field may look like. It's perfectly fine. Providing options is what higher education is supposed to do.

      Choosing a minor? Sometimes the minor chooses you. 

      "I wanted a variety of communication experiences, so [my Public Relations minor] has allowed me to have a broad major and also further refine my interests within the field." 

      Shannon Ball
      About Public Relations minor

       Why did you choose your minor and how do you think it complements your major?
      I got involved in the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) as a first-year student where I learned what the public relations field is all about. One of the main goals is building mutually beneficial relationships between an organization and its publics, and I loved this aspect of the communication field. I still wanted a variety of communication experiences, so this minor has allowed me to have a broad major and also further refine my interests within the field.

      Shannon Ball What year did you decide on your major and minor?
      I came into college as a communication major. I added psychology as a second major at the beginning spring semester of my first year after taking (and loving) Interpersonal Communication, which blended psychology and communication. At the end of my sophomore year I officially added public relations as my minor.
