Creating a Graduate or Interdisciplinary Concentration
A concentration is an organized curriculum within a graduate or professional major that enhances or complements the major in a manner which leads to specific educational or occupational goals. This process should be used to propose a new concentration in an existing graduate major or to enter into an existing interdisciplinary concentration.
