2013-2014 Academic Catalogue [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

The Curricula


Fourth Class (Freshman) Year

Because the Institute has a carefully structured program leading to graduation in each of its various curricula, it is advisable to choose at the outset the curriculum in which one plans to graduate. However, there are enough elements common to all curricula in the Fourth Class not only to give cadets a sense of common academic purpose but also to make transfers possible during the first year and even the second. Basically, the curricula divide between science and engineering (Applied Mathematics, Biology, B.S. Psychology, Chemistry, Computer and Information Sciences, Physics, Physics with Nuclear Energy Concentration, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering) and the liberal arts (Economics and Business, English, Rhetoric, and Humansitic Studies, History, International Studies and Political Science, Modern Languages and Cultures, B.A. Psychology).
