Clusters

What are Clusters?

  • "A cluster is a grouping of courses selected by a student in consultation with an adviser to develop a set of skills tailored to the unique needs of the student."

  • "The cluster must consist of courses from no more than two disciplines, and total 12 to 15 credits."

  • "Normally some upper division courses would be included to ensure that adequate depth of knowledge is achieved in the area chosen."  (BYUI Academic Programs)

  • "Unlike a minor, a cluster is a focused study in academic disciplines that will complement students' selected majors by giving them skills they will need in the future."

  • "Clusters try to help [students] develop special skills [in one interest area that] they can use and [that will] also attract the attention of the employment world," (Fenton Broadhead, Dean of the College of Business and Communication)
