Academic Programs

Majors and Minors

A major represents an area of concentration (eight to 12 courses) in one academic discipline. Some majors at College of the Ozarks also require a minor, which is a smaller area of concentration (six to seven courses). Every Bachelor degree candidate must complete a major. Students may also declare a minor or a second major. Students may not declare more than two majors or two minors. Students are expected to complete their program of study within eight semesters up to a maximum of ten semesters with approval by the Dean of the College.

Specific course requirements for majors are available in the College Catalog. Some majors may require more courses than others.

Students must have a declared major on record in the office of the Dean of the College no later than the first semester of their junior year. Students may change their major or minor by completing the necessary form available in the office of the Dean of the College. After completion of the student's graduation check, approval of the Dean of the College or Registrar is necessary.
