Curricular Clusters

The following chart is intended to aid advisors and students make decisions about the classes they may want to take. The faculty members who teach the courses listed in the chart were asked to identify the two principal areas of emphasis for each course. Students who wish to gain an understanding of the breadth of discipline may want to choose courses with different areas of emphasis, whereas students pursuing an in-depth study of a particular topic may want to take several courses in one area of emphasis.
