Majors, Minors, Options

University of Oregon undergraduate students must complete an academic major to graduate; they may also complete additional majors, minors, or both. Options within majors or minors are additional ways of focusing academic interests, but they do not appear on academic transcripts. Other terms used for options include areas of concentration, emphasis, focus, or specialization; preparatory programs; primary and secondary areas or subjects; fields or subfields; programs of emphasis or study; and tracks. Technically, there are no minors in graduate degree and certificate programs. Graduate students also may pursue options within their major disciplines.
