Majors, minors, and tracks, oh my!

At DeSales, you can choose from more than 30 majors, or design one especially for you. There are plenty of ways to mix and match your interests to create a program of study that will, to quote our patron saint, help you to "be who you are, and be that well." You can double-major, add a minor (or two), or select or choose from specific areas of concentration. You'll graduate fully prepared for your career of choice or for graduate school. Along the way, a lot of people will help you.
