Specializations

Adding a specialization to your degree program enables you to focus your studies, which will result in not only a more individualized degree, but also a more marketable one.

A specialization consists of 12 semester credit hours. You will begin specialization coursework following the successful completion of the major capstone, and you must declare a specialization prior to completion of program requirements.

You may not enroll in any undergraduate specialization that has a course overlap with your declared major.
