Admission to the disciplinary and divisional track of the distributed studies major requires completion of 60 credits or more, a one-year break in the student's academic career, and permission from the College of Arts & Sciences dean's office. The disciplinary and divisional track of the distributed studies major is intended for returning students who have accumulated a significant number of credits toward the completion of one or more arts and sciences majors, are not eligible to continue in any of those majors, and have taken a break in their academic career.
An individually structured track also is available in the distributed studies major. Admission to this track also requires permission from the College of Arts & Sciences dean's office. Students pursuing the individually structured track must work with a faculty member to construct a major that meets the college's minimum major requirements and that focuses on some of aspect of the arts and sciences not adequately addressed by any other major offered by the college. Students pursuing this track must write and defend a thesis based on original scholarly or creative work.
