Student Proposal. An Individual Major may be organized by a student having a specific academic interest not represented by an established major. Each student wishing an Individual Major should submit a proposal to the Dean's Office, prior to reaching 120 units, for review by the Student Actions and Individual Major Subcommittee. This proposal must include (1) an essay describing the special educational aims of the student, including a statement indicating why the educational objectives cannot be met by existing majors; (2) a list of planned courses; and (3) faculty adviser recommendations. It is critical that students contact a college counselor in the Dean's Office for consultation and development of the proposal.
