Great news – this is offered as a Flex major or minor at select campuses. That means at least half of the subjects in this major or minor are Flex subjects. Wherever you find them, whether they’re in a Flex major or minor or in a full StudyFlex course, our Flex subjects let you choose between studying online or on campus. It’s the perfect way to get the best of both worlds.
