The Center for Nonprofit and NGO Studies offers both a B.A. and a B.S. degree for a major in nonprofit and NGO studies that is designed primarily for students seeking a career in public affairs in government, voluntary social agencies, and public interest groups. Each student must complete the required courses of the major along with 15 credit hours in interdisciplinary electives related to the worlds in which nonprofits and NGOs operate, chosen with an advisor. Several university departments participate in the major in nonprofit and NGO studies.
