Selected Studies

Director Sharon H. Nelson
Program Committee Coordinator Beth A. Klaisner

The program in selected studies allows students to pursue a self-designed course of study. It is intended for students with a definite educational objective that is not met by the majors presently offered by the College of Liberal Arts. While the program is free from several traditional requirements, students must meet other requirements and procedures to obtain the degree.

Students are eligible for the program after they complete 45 credit hours. With the help of program sponsors, students formulate a contract outlining their study goals and reserving at least 48 credit hours for core courses that help accomplish those goals. The contract is evaluated and approved by the program committee.

In addition to completing the core and meeting all other university and college requirements for graduation, students must successfully complete at least 60 credit hours in courses numbered 300 or above; eight to 16 credit hours must be earned in LA 490, Senior Project in Selected Studies. Students must submit a proposal for the project to the program committee for approval before the beginning of their senior year.

Students interested in selected studies should see the committee coordinator for more information about the program.
