Programs of Study

Wheaton’s major and minor offerings are expansive, encompassing more than 100 options. Some, such as biology, are located within an academic department; others, like environmental studies, are interdepartmental programs. In either case, you will find the requirements for established majors and minors outlined below.  Each major has slightly different requirements for completing it; which can be found in specific program pages. In the case where a student is pursuing more than one major, at least seven courses must be unique to each major.  A student may use no more than one course to fulfill the requirements of both their major and minor programs. In the case where a student is pursuing two or more minor programs, no courses in the minors may overlap.  Departments and programs can determine whether courses receiving ‘P’ grades will count toward the major.  Department Chairs for each program are available to review requirements.
