Each school has its own chapter in this book. The College or CLAS refers to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, which admits most undergraduates and offers the largest number of majors. Look for your areas of interest in the chapters belonging to the school that offers them. If you are not sure where to find a program, look in the index at the back of this catalog for page numbers of individual programs and course categories. Each school lists general information and common requirements for most degrees at the beginning of its chapter. You should read all the general information for your school.
