A directed studies major or minor is available for students who have an unusual breadth of academic preparation, a high level of motivation and perseverance, and the ability to assume independence in undertaking their academic work. Directed Studies majors and minors are designed by individual students in consultation with a faculty advisory committee. Students who wish to declare a Direct Studies major or minor must complete a Directed Studies Application form and submit it to the Registrar’s Office. The Academic Standings Committee reviews and, when appropriate, approves student applications to complete a Directed Studies major or minor. See the Registrar’s Office for the necessary form.
