The faculty recommends that students take elective courses in economics, geography, history, political science, and sociology.

Students are also encouraged to consider the development of an individualized major. Individualized majors are to be interdisciplinary in nature and are to cross area lines. During the freshman year, the student should consult with the faculty adviser in developing a program linking individual interests in history with business, fine arts, science, religion, philosophy, and the humanities, depending upon career goals and life plans.
