Applying to the Program
Since designing a Customized major can take several months, students interested in the program should contact the Director as early as possible in their academic careers. The Director will schedule an interview to discuss the applicant's academic history and interests, explain the process of designing and proposing a Customized Major, and refer the student to faculty members who can provide curricular advice. The applicant will design an individualized plan of study with the help of an Advisory Committee that consists of two or more faculty members in relevant disciplines. The completed application should be submitted to the Director for approval at least three semesters before the applicant's planned graduation date.
