University Major

Department website: http://www.wesleyan.edu/studentaffairs/resources/majordeclaration/umajor.html

The University Major affords first and second-semester sophomores the opportunity to design a program that responds to their individual interests and aptitudes, that provides the excitement and the challenge of using the methodologies of two or more disciplines, and that gives sophomores the chance to work independently on an entire program, developing the necessary background and integrating the courses chosen in order to achieve the objectives that are set.

A student who wishes to arrange a University Major should discuss their intended program with members of the faculty in the student’s fields of interest. The purpose of the discussions is to help the student clarify preliminary plans and select the three faculty members who will serve as sponsors.
