Students who would like to construct an interdisciplinary major will submit a proposed program, endorsed by one or more professors from each of the departments or programs concerned, to the Committee on Academic Standing and Special Majors. Under ordinary circumstances, the proposal will be submitted no later than the seventh week of the first semester of the junior year. The program will include a minimum of six upper-level courses and a thesis plan. The Committee on Academic Standing and Special Majors will authorize the appointment of an ad hoc advisory committee of three professors, which will approve any possible modifications in the program, administer an appropriate comprehensive examination, review the thesis, and make recommendations for the degree with or without Honors. Information on proposing interdisciplinary programs is available in the Office of Student Affairs.
