Programs of Study by Department


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. This section of the catalog outlines, by department, the requirements for all major and minor concentrations at the college and provides descriptions of the courses offered by each department at the time of publication. 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 and Program Coordinators for each program are available to review requirements.  

A list of Department Chairs and Program Coordinators can be found here.
