A Concentration consists of at least six specified/prescribed courses within an area of disciplinary or interdisciplinary study, which is completed on an optional basis and is noted on the academic transcript.
A Concentration provides students the opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge representing a subspecialization or emphasis within the core discipline or major.
Courses for a Concentration are selected from the professional (core) elective courses offered to students within their discipline or major. Professional (core) required courses may not be included in the course count/defined structure of a Concentration.
More than one Concentration may be obtained within a program; however, an individual course can be applied only to one Concentration. Earning one Concentration will not increase the number of courses required to graduate.
The Concentration is approved by Senate, as per the requirements for a Category 3 Minor Modification outlined in the Procedures section of Senate Policy 127: Curriculum Modifications: Graduate and Undergraduate Programs.
