Take Classes by Concentration
Here at Oakton, students have an excellent opportunity to study within a concentration while completing their degree. Students will receive recognition on their transcripts for completing one or more concentrations. Some of these areas of study include the Honors, Peace and Social Justice, Women and Gender Studies, Great Books, Global Studies, and our newest Environmental Studies concentrations, as well as others. Many humanities and philosophy classes fulfill one or more requirements for multiple concentrations at a time. Be sure to check out what classes fit your concentration by searching under "Category" when registering for classes.
