Arts and Sciences Student Planned Major (SPMJ)


Return to Departments and Programs Return to: Departments and Programs

The Student Planned Major provides students who wish to graduate from the College of Arts and Sciences the opportunity to pursue educational goals which cannot readily be accommodated in the College’s disciplinary majors. Students in the SPMJ must complete the College’s Liberal Education Curriculum and work with a College Advisor plus at least two board appointed faculty advisors to create an individually tailored course of study of sufficient credit hours to meet general degree requirements. Any substitution to the LEC requirements must be approved by the College, the faculty advisors and one faculty member representing the area of the substitution. Students completing this major are eligible to receive either the B.A. or the B.S. degree depending upon the particular configuration of course work selected.

Any undergraduate student in Arts and Sciences in good academic standing is eligible to apply for the SPMJ. Students interested in this option should contact the Director of Advising in the College of Arts and Sciences to begin the process. Those entering the SPMJ are expected to develop a written statement outlining educational goals and how the proposed or current course of study accomplishes the goals.
