Students may initiate interdisciplinary majors other than those formally approved by the faculty. Such majors require a minimum of 42 semester hours across three departments.

A minimum of 33 semester hours must be from two departments with no fewer than 14 semester hours from each. At least 6 semester hours of 300-level courses normally must be taken from each of these two departments. A minimum of eight semester hours must be chosen from a third department.

Students must provide a written statement of purpose for such programs. Proposals require the approval of the registrar, two advisors, and the chairs of the departments from which the 33 semester hours are selected. Interdisciplinary major forms are available in the registrar’s office.
