DePauw’s challenging curriculum offers you a tremendous amount of academic freedom. We have 40 majors and three music degree programs. If you can’t find something that piques your interest, you can actually create your own major with the help of a faculty adviser.

DePauw faculty will do more than teach you how to learn; they will teach you how to think. They are researchers, authors and experts in their fields, yet are completely dedicated to student success in and out of the classroom. They push students to be independent thinkers, writers and communicators. They will challenge you to explore subjects you’re curious about and open your mind to new possibilities.
