Assumption College is pleased to announce several exciting new majors and programs, in addition to the 40 majors and 45 minors the College already offers students.
Assumption’s new Criminology Major provides students with an understanding of crime as a social phenomenon, both regarding its causes and its consequences for society. Go beyond the basic study of how crimes occur and learn why individuals engage in criminal behavior. Prepare for a career in law, criminal justice, social work, government service, human resources or business with a solid background in human nature and how the criminal justice system operates.
Assumption’s new Education Major allows students to earn a double major in both education and a specific academic subject area in just four years, equipping you with the skills you’ll need for your career. The College’s dual advising program matches students with two advisors: a faculty member from the education department and one from their academic area of interest to ensure you’re on the right path.
Building on Assumption’s 83% acceptance rate into health-related graduate programs, the college’s expanded Health Professions Program offers graduate school advising, a new course developed to provide a global perspective on the industry as well as help students prepare for graduate school interviews, and discounted Kaplan Test Prep courses.
