Strongly motivated students may design a special BS interdisciplinary academic program leading to a degree not offered through existing programs. Students interested in a Special Major should seek a volunteer faculty advisory committee consisting of three professors from at least two disciplines. A program designed jointly with this faculty committee is then submitted for approval on a Request for Special Major Program form.

A Special Major program must comply with the standard graduation requirements listed under Baccalaureate Degree Requirements .The program must consist of at least 36 upper-division semester units in the major, of which 18 upper-division semester units must be completed after approval of the BS Special Major by the Special Major Coordinator. Each college dean is responsible for supporting the Special Major program as the Special Major Coordinator. The student will be assigned to the college that houses the department of the lead faculty member.
