  3. Courses included in the major/minor should be 3000-level or 4000-level courses. Exceptions should be limited and supported by adequate rationale.
  4. Students should identify the major/minor in the title of the proposal. E.g., “Proposal for a General Studies Major (Minor) with an Emphasis in __________.”
  5. Up to 15 semester hours may be earned at another institution. For courses taken elsewhere, students must attach a current course description and/or syllabus to the proposal. Courses are subject to normal transfer regulations.
  6. A maximum of 6 semester hours may be earned by independent study.
