Our Undergraduate Curriculum

The goal of Centenary College is to provide an educational program that balances liberal arts study with their chosen career program. The College's curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts, or the Bachelor of Science degree is organized into three parts:

  • The College's Core Requirements - These include a specific number of courses from the liberal arts disciplines, which guarantees a minimal uniformity of study without sacrificing the individual educational interests of the student.
  • The Major - Majors are designed to give the student mastery of a single field, and to introduce that student to a field of possible professional involvement. A student usually selects a major during his or her freshman or sophomore year. The student also has the option of selecting a minor or a special concentration to go along with the major field of study.
  • Course Electives - To round out the curriculum, electives are divided between liberal arts studies and free electives chosen by the student in consultation with his or her advisor.
