The University major is an interdisciplinary major program approved by the University Curriculum Committee.
An undergraduate student, who chooses to concentrate on a subject that crosses departmental lines, rather than specializing in an established departmental major, may work with an advisor to research and design a University major to achieve the student’s goals for preparation in a major that Jacksonville University does not offer. Any major program for which a proper pattern of studies exists at JU will be considered. Students electing this option will be designated as University Majors.
To pursue a University major, a student must:
- submit a plan of study to the Curriculum Committee and the appropriate college dean(s) supervising the contributory course offerings
- secure the approval of the Curriculum Committee and the appropriate dean(s)
- have a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA and at least 24 credit hours remaining to be completed in the proposed major at the time the plan is approved
Guidelines for submission of University major proposals can be obtained from the current chair of the University Curriculum Committee or from the director of the Honors Program.
