Music professor and student on trombone

With 32 majors, 22 minors and 13 concentrations, students can customize their experiences for a personalized approach to their college education. There’s no need to follow a prescribed list of general education requirements with our open curriculum.

Unsure of your major? Don’t worry. 

Kalamazoo College is one of the best colleges for undecided majors because our students wait until the second term of sophomore year to officially declare their majors⁠—while still typically graduating in four years.

Find out how these academic programs and the K-Plan do more in four years so our students can do more in a lifetime.
