Student Designed Major

The purpose of the student-designed Major is to allow a limited number of Women's College students with specific academic goals, interests, and needs an opportunity to pursue an area of study that is not presently offered by the University.

A student proposing a student-designed Major should have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5. She must have at least two faculty advisors, one of whom is designated as the primary advisor. The proposed Major should include:

       a) number of credits equal to the average number of credits for a Major in a related area, typically about 40 credits,
       b) a balanced number of upper division (300-400) courses with lower division (100-200) courses,
       c) courses appropriate to the proposed Major, and, 
       d) no more than one Independent Study in the Major per year.

The student-designed Major should be prepared for submission for approval to the Dean of the School of Arts, Sciences, and Business in the second semester of the sophomore year.
