Individualized Major

The Individualized Major leads to the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. It provides an individually designed major study plan for those students whose objectives cannot be met by the normal major study programs. A department chair selected by the individual student administers the program.

Requirements: A major study plan is prepared cooperatively by the sponsoring faculty member and the student, to be completed no later than the first semester of the junior year. The plan will be presented to the College of Arts and Sciences Academic Council for approval. Only those plans exhibiting unusual merit will be approved. The guidelines for the minimum and maximum number of credits for each individualized major are listed below:

Major Minimum Credits Maximum Credits Upper-Division Requirement
Departmental Major 30 50 22
Interdepartmental Major 40 60 27
