ATLAS Reporting - Clusters of LAS Majors

LAS program clusters are similar to academic disciplines ( However, unlike disciplines, clusters are nonoverlapping. Each LAS major belongs to a single cluster. This makes clusters more convenient for reporting purposes.


ATLAS worked with the LAS Dean's Office to define clusters in 2006. Since then there have been periodic revisits.
This list includes programs which are no longer current, but which are still relevant for historical reporting.
