The individualized major is designed for any undergraduate student who would like to focus their attention in a specific area of study not currently offered by the university. A student, in consultation with faculty, will design a unique major that furthers the education of the student. Therefore, the curriculum for this major will vary by student. All individualized majors must meet the following criteria:
- The major must consist of a minimum of 30 credits (may include some courses already completed).
- Seven of the 10 courses must be at the 200 level.
- Each student will have the support of an academic adviser with expertise in the field of interest and two additional committee members. This committee must approve the proposed major.
- Each student will submit a final project or thesis to complete the requirements for the program. This project or thesis will be submitted to and evaluated by their faculty committee in the final semester of their education.
- All University Curriculum requirements must be completed outside the major.
- Students in the College of Arts and Sciences must complete the modern language requirement.
- Any minor requirements must be completed outside the major.
