The independent major is a special opportunity for students whose educational objectives cannot be met by any of the regular majors. This option allows students to create a specially tailored, inter-disciplinary course of study. The program is developed by the student in consultation with faculty advisors and must be approved by the Independent Major Committee, which is responsible for supervising the student’s work. Please note: due to current enrollment and advising limitations, the independent major cannot accept any students with Computer Science as either their primary or secondary areas of study.
