An individualized concentration is the equivalent of a major in a traditional degree program. There is a proposal process required for approval to pursue an individualized concentration (title and course requirements, see advisor for details). The coursework for the individualized concentration consists of traditional courses from multiple disciplines, independent study, and experiential learning -- all chosen with guidance from an academic advisor. Individualized concentrations cannot duplicate any existing Mason degree programs. Students must present a minimum GPA of 2.00 in courses applied to the concentration.
Individualized proposals are due:
Spring: 1 week after spring break (calendar)
Summer: By June 15
Fall: By Oct 15
If your proposals need revision, revisions should be submitted within 2 weeks of feedback.
