A student may plan and gain approval for a special major involving work in two or more departments when no existing major or double major meets her academic needs. The Petition for Special Major form with complete instructions and requirements is available in the Office of Academic Affairs. Petitions must be submitted at least one year prior to graduation. Examples of such majors have included Family Studies and Engineering Physics. Such majors are to consist of a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 15 courses, with at least half of the courses to be numbered 300 or above. Special majors require the approval of the Educational Policies Committee.
