College of the Atlantic is fairly unique in having only a single major. However, the very nature of this major is vast and interdisciplinary.This allows students to essentially build their own major, pursuing and combining their interest. This single major incorporates biology, art, psychology, history, music, earth sciences, ecology, theater, photography, gender studies, humanities, environmental policy and nearly any other possible field. This allows students to not only follow their interests but also approach challenges from multiple angles. There is a strong environmental aspect to this major and the vast majority of students combine their passions with this philosophy.

I have participated in a research opportunity on Great Duck Island, typically used by students as an internship, with College of the Atlantic. This opportunity to assist in seabird research and conduct my own was a challenging, stimulating and valuable experience. The guidance and help received challenged me to discover ways to overcome any difficulties, yet encouraged critical and creative thinking. It was a fantastic chance to participate in research and a great introduction to performing my own research.

There is only one undergraduate degree offered at College of the Atlantic which is Human Ecology. This degree allows students to explore multiple subjects of interest. For example, students can study ceramics, law, and politics all at the same time. It is great being able to shape your degree in this way.

At COA, you get to design your own curriculum. Everyone majors in Human Ecology but you are in charge of deciding what classes you want to take. Additionally, your internship and senior project allow you to focus on a particular area and give you work and life experience to prepare you for the next step after COA.

COA has one major, which is Human Ecology. You can combine all of your interests or focus on something specific. You don't have to worry about changing your major as your interests evolve.
The only downside is that it is hard to explain to people what Human Ecology is.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
