Individualized Area of Concentration

A student with special interests not met by any of the established majors may submit this proposal for an individualized area of concentration with approval from the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and faculty advisors in two disciplines related to the proposed concentration. An individualized area of concentration must meet these criteria: the coursework must include in-depth study from at least one department; the capabilities of the student and the resources of the institution must be sufficient to sustain the intended program; the program must be approved by the time the student applies to graduate, and the program must meet all the goals and expectations of the concept of a major. An individualized area of concentration must include a minimum of six courses from a single discipline (including a senior project) and no fewer than two courses from a second discipline, totaling a minimum of 30 semester hours.
