Individualized Major

Degree Requirements

Before applying for an individualized major, students should consult with their advisor about the possibility of pursuing their interests within an existing program.

Select an advisory committee of three faculty members in relevant disciplines, including at least one tenure track or tenured faculty, and work with them to plan a structured, coherent and logical course of study.

The program of study for a major must include a minimum of 30 semester hour credits within the field of concentration, plus a senior seminar or project with the value of between 4 and 8 semester course credits.

Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 at the time of petition. Students pursuing an individualized major may not declare a second major.

Students must submit a petition and essay to the Academic Standing Committee (ASC) for approval of individualized majors.

Students should begin the process of declaring an individualized major before the end of their sophomore year.
