Independent Major at CAS

The independent major allows a student to design an interdisciplinary course of study within the College of Arts & Sciences that is uniquely suited to their interests and goals. Formed with the advice and approval of appropriate faculty and the program coordinator, an independent major comprises at least ten upper-level courses chosen from a minimum of three College of Arts & Sciences departments, with no more than four courses in a single department. The student’s course of study should demonstrate a level of focus and depth comparable to a departmental major. For more information, contact CAS Academic Advising.
