In addition to those majors offered in the regular College curriculum, students may design interdisciplinary majors to accommodate and define particular academic interests. Examples include majors that combine coursework in art and sociology, in history and economics, and in English and psychology. Many other combinations are possible.
Students should first consult with their advisors or prospective departments and then write a proposal explaining their areas of interest and listing the courses that will enable them to attain their objectives. These courses may be chosen from any courses regularly offered at Russell Sage College and should also fulfill all general education requirements. The official proposal form may be obtained from the Office of Student Services or the Center for Academic Advising and Career Planning. It must be approved and signed by a faculty advisor or program coordinator in each discipline and by the Dean of Russell Sage College. Students requiring assistance with developing an interdisciplinary studies proposal may consult a faculty member or the Director of Academic Advising and Career Planning.
