Each of the academic majors is designed to foster intellectual curiosity and a quest for knowledge.

We pride ourselves on offering course curriculum that provides the intellectual foundation for the development of critical thinking, creativity and innovation, artistic expression, problem solving, social responsibility, and the lifelong pursuit of knowledge.
