Career and Academic Pathways

Career and Academic Pathways (CAPs) are groups of similar programs designed to help you select a program of study (i.e., a major) and speed your progress towards completion.

Within each CAP, you can explore a set of program maps that show a semester by semester path from program entry to completion. Each program map shows the recommended courses for a full-time student.
