* Students may develop individualized majors with the approval of their advisor, the division chair, and the provost. With some frequency, students create individualized majors in anthropology. The Veterans Administration will not pay for individualized majors. Students may also complete two majors, but will receive only one degree. If the two completed majors result in different degrees (B.A. and B.S.), the student may decide which degree he or she will receive.
** Students must complete a concurrent major in either biology, English, history, mathematics, or music.
