Our Programs and Centers extend our breadth and depth, and offer students opportunities for unique interdisciplinary study as well as opportunities to reach beyond their own expectations.
We offer graduate programs in each of the four disciplinary areas: Fine Arts (MFA in Dramatic Arts), Humanities (M.A. in History), Social Sciences (M.A. in International Relations), and Natural Sciences (M.S. in Marine Science). These graduate programs involve close collaborations of faculty with graduate students and add to the intellectual growth and activity of the participating departments.
Faculty-led advising, with additional support from the Dean's office, assist students with information about potential majors and minor, academic policies, course selection, class reservation and registration procedures, and graduation requirements, as well as facilitating decision making about educational goals, alternatives, and career needs.

The Honors Program is designed to provide talented and passionate students with challenges and opportunities that will allow them to achieve their intellectual goals. Honors students have numerous opportunities for interaction with faculty, interdisciplinary courses, undergraduate research and focused academic advising.
The College is home to over 20 national honor and professional societies, from Phi Beta Kappa, the oldest and most prestigious academic honor society in the United States, to Theta Alpha Kappa, the national honor society for theological and religious studies.
The assessment process is the primary method for evaluating what students have learned in their chosen programs of study and throughout the core curriculum. It plays an essential role in academic program review, and it has become a central focus in the external reaccreditation process through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
