The Major: The Second Curricular Component

In addition to satisfying the requirements of the General Education Curriculum each student must complete a major in an academic discipline or area of concentration in order to graduate from the University. Specific requirements for each major are described in detail in the departmental listings in this bulletin. The major area of study must be declared before the first semester of the student’s junior year. Wilkes University offers three baccalaureate degrees—the Bachelor of Arts Degree, the Bachelor of Business Administration Degree, and the Bachelor of Science Degree—and Secondary Education Certification in Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Environmental Sciences, English, History, Mathematics, Political Science, and Spanish.
