Becoming familiar with the programs of study that interest you is a first step toward determining what you will concentrate on as a student. That program will become your major.
In the liberal arts there are programs of study that focus on the humanities, social sciences, fine and performing arts, and education. Finding your academic path usually requires some experimentation—taking preliminary courses, talking to your adviser, faculty members, and others.
You may opt for just one major, or two, or a major plus minors. Here's how this page works:
The majors are listed at right. Clicking a major will take you to the department homepage for that major. The department website gives you general information on majors and minors, faculty, career information, and student organizations. You can also click the course catalog link at the top-right of this page, which will bring you to the UNH course catalog homepage. You can then navigate to majors and minors for details, the most up-to-date requirements, and course descriptions.
Minors are an opportunity to add to your educational experience without the full workload of a second major. Be sure to check out this list, because there are many interesting choices not listed under majors.
Interdisciplinary Studies are programs of study taught by faculty members from several different departments. They include both majors and minors. Examples of such programs are Africana and African American studies or cinema studies.
