What is a concentration?

Smolny’s academic plan has been constructed to emphasize both single and multidisciplinary programs. A concentration is a program of specialization for students studying at Smolny College. Two types of programs exist: the Major, the college’s main concentration program, and Minors, or additional concentration programs. In order to receive a diploma from Smolny College, each student must choose a major and fulfill its requirements, concluding with the defense of a thesis (the qualifying work for a bachelor’s degree). In addition to their major, students who wish may elect a minor. Students must decide upon their major at the end of their fourth semester. Read more about our programs…
