Independent Major - BA or BS

Because the departmentally based majors as described above may not always meet the unique needs of some students, this major allows a student to design from existing courses a program of study that is valid academically and meets particular goals.

A student may plan an independent major any time before the end of the fall semester of the sophomore year. In order to gain approval, the student plans a combination of courses that will fulfill his or her educational objectives and secures the endorsement of a faculty member willing to serve as adviser. This plan along with a transcript, a list of the desired major courses, rationale for the proposal, and a timetable for completing the program is then presented to the academic dean for final approval. Independent major IDM 495 may be included in the final semester of the program. Students must complete an independent major request form that can be obtained from the registrar‘s office.

Some students have included in their program a semester at another institution that specializes in their area of interest or overseas or special educational experiences.

Students contemplating the independent major should begin early to complete the core requirements so that in their last two years they may pursue their major interests. Inquiries about this program should be directed to the student‘s adviser.
