Partnership with Nyack College for Blended Degree Program

Saint Katherine College and 125-year old Nyack College (http://www.nyack.edu/) have partnered to offer students the option of a blended degree program that awards a BA/BS degree from the College and a second BA/BS degree from Nyack College, which is fully accredited. All courses and academic requirements are completed in Encinitas but students are also offered the opportunity to study for a semester or year at Nyack College at their Rockland or Manhattan campuses. This allows students to graduate with an accredited degree while Saint Katherine College completes the multi-year accreditation process.

Arts Major

Art students learn about the methods of art and examine the history of art and architecture across a comprehensive cultural, geographical, historical, and methodological spectrum. Music students gain exposure to a variety of musical traditions throughout the world. They take courses that address a number of topics such as the materials of tonal music in the Western tradition, analysis of individual works, and study of composers and genres. Courses also examine non-Western and vernacular repertories, musical composition, and the role of music in society. Both areas are covered in an integrated manner.

Agricultural and Biological Sciences Major

The major covers the basic concepts, facts, methodologies, and problems of agricultural and biological sciences. Coursework focuses on the general and fundamental properties of living organisms and contemporary research interests, as opposed to traditional, distinct fields within the life sciences. Agriculture coursework is supplemented with field work involving crops and greenhouse plants. Students graduate from the program prepared to pursue graduate studies in any area of biology or agriculture, or employment in a wide variety of areas; upon graduation, they enter a field whose primary goal may be to invent biologically active substances that are used to treat disease, develop techniques to produce nutritious sources of food, eliminate environmental pollution, or provide alternative fuel sources.

Chemistry and Biochemistry Major

The chemistry and biochemistry major prepares students for graduate study and careers in teaching and research, operation and control of manufacturing processes, and management and development in the chemical industry. Students may create -- in consultation with their advisers -- individual courses of study that reflect their interests and professional goals.

Business, Management and Economics Major

This major at Saint Katherine College focuses on the modern economy. The program's curriculum covers the role of prices and markets; distribution of goods and services; and factors that help determine income, employment, and prices. Students interested in management science learn how to use quantitative tools and qualitative methods to evaluate the human and social aspects of business problems. Because they only take a few required courses, students can design individual programs that meet their career interests and goals. They may also complete internships that allow them to apply theoretical learning in real-world settings.

English Language and Literature Major

The English language and literature major allows students to thoroughly study works of literature, drama, and film that were originally written in English. Courses examine several topics including the status of literature within culture, literary history of particular periods, achievements of major authors, and defining characteristics of genres.

History Major

Students in the history program study Western and non-Western histories to learn how culture, science, institutions, and behaviors evolved. Courses cover the medieval, Renaissance, and modern periods and the United States, Europe, and Asia, as well as special topics such as Byzantium, Ancient Rome, and Greece. Concentrations are available in Armenian Studies, Coptic Studies, and Russian Studies.

Kinesiology and Nutrition

This program introduces students to sports medicine from the perspectives of movement and metabolism. Students gain an understanding of how the body works from the cellular to anatomic levels. Student internships at local clinics complement classroom and laboratory instruction.

Management Science Major

Students in the management science major learn how to use quantitative tools and qualitative methods to evaluate the human and social aspects of business problems. Because they only take a few required courses, students can design individual programs that meet their career interests and goals. They may also complete internships that allow them to apply theoretical learning in real-world settings.

Music Major

Music students gain exposure to a variety of musical traditions throughout the world. They take courses that address a number of topics such as the materials of tonal music in the Western tradition, analysis of individual works, and study of composers and genres. Courses also examine non-Western and vernacular repertories, musical composition, and the role of music in society.

Philosophy Minor

The philosophy major covers a variety of historical fields and periods, introduces classic texts in the discipline, and provides training in methods and argument.

Public Health and Policy Studies Major

The public health and policy studies major covers domestic and international policy issues. Students learn about policy analysis and implementation, quantitative and economic techniques and methods, and policy research. The major includes a concentration in criminal justice and law.

Theology Minor

The theology major at Saint Katherine College is ideal for students who are interested in taking interdisciplinary approaches -- such as historical, literary-critic, philosophical, or sociological -- to religious study. Students examine various aspects of religion including religion and religious thought, religion's influence on human cultures (and vice versa), and human beings' faith in God.

Interdisciplinary Studies Program

The interdisciplinary studies program allows students to create individual curricula that would not easily fit within the structure of a single major. Students' courses of study are typically centered around -- but not restricted to -- the humanities.
