The proposal is considered by a committee consisting of the associate dean, the major adviser and a second adviser from another discipline. If the proposed individualized major or minor is approved, the student would complete the major or minor program under the direction of these advisers. After the program has been accepted, any change must be approved by the committee, which may require a program of directed study or reading or the preparation of an essay to synthesize the coursework.
Individualized majors must be planned and approved before the second semester of the student’s junior year. Any exceptions to this must be approved by the associate dean, especially for transfer students.
All other requirements for a degree from the College of Arts and Sciences, such as general education requirements and number of upper level hours, must be met in every student’s overall academic program.
For further information and the form to complete for this major, contact the Arts and Sciences Dean’s Office.
