Apply to a student-designed major
Once you have discussed a possible special major with a faculty advisor, you should submit the Student-Designed Major application form (PDF), and include the following:
- The proposed program
- A statement of purpose and rationale
- Evidence of an advisor’s and school’s approval to the Curriculum Committee
Your proposal should include evidence that you have considered courses or learning experiences, such as Internships or Independent Study, which will provide an opportunity to integrate content and skills from the various disciplines in your program.
The Curriculum Committee may suggest changes, but once the proposal has been approved by the committee, a contract will be drawn up to be placed in your file in Student Academic Services.
