90+ Programs of Study: How Do I Decide?

It's okay to be undecided! We want you to explore until you learn what you love. Top employers remind Saint Vincent alumni that “it takes more than a major” to thrive. With more than 90 programs of study, including majors, minors, certificates and concentrations, the possibilities are endless. Corporate recruiters and grad school admission teams look for personality, maturity and a certain mindset. Someone who can work well with others and adapt. Someone who can ask a timely question and help solve problems in an uncertain world. Someone unafraid to innovate.
