The program requires course work in general education, a core curriculum, a minor, a specialty area, and open electives. The general education component provides a broad foundation of study, which leads to the core curriculum, focusing on a specialty.

Core courses aim to enhance communication and analytical skills, so students gain an understanding of art, literature, and history, which shapes an appreciation for the humanities.

Interdisciplinary Studies provides freedom for students to choose course work, which is primarily lodged in the selection of a minor course of study. Students are able to explore ERAU’s offerings in search of a scholarly education that will broaden their knowledge and worldwide ambitions.

In the capstone experience, each student will complete and document program outcomes.  The Capstone Project will illustrate and provide evidence of a well-rounded education to domestic and international employers.
