Multidisciplinary Minor

The multidisciplinary minor, designed for students who have interests not met by existing minors, requires 18-24 s.h., 9 s.h. of which must be above 2999. The theme-focused minor should normally comprise courses from three to five disciplines and should not reproduce existing disciplinary or other multidisciplinary minors. Courses should exclude the student’s major. A declared major who is interested in the multidisciplinary minor and who has completed a minimum of 30 s.h. should discuss with his or her advisor the theme around which the minor will be developed and submit a written plan to the faculty member assigned by the student’s major department to oversee the multidisciplinary minor and to that department’s chair. (Please note that the Multidisciplinary Studies director is not involved with this minor.) Criteria for the plan include thematic unity and coherence and clarity of educational objectives. The plan must be approved before the student has completed 80 s.h. and before submission of the senior summary, to which a copy of the approved plan will be attached. The student will complete the course of study under the supervision of his or her advisor.
