The Selected Studies Program offers the student an opportunity to develop a highly individualized curricular plan. This program, which can lead to the B.S. degree, is intended to meet individual needs. It provides considerable freedom in curricular planning, but also requires greatly increased responsibility on the part of the student. Each student in the selected studies program develops a four-year program of study based on academic goals. Student is assisted by a faculty advisor who helps to formulate an academically sound curriculum. Each Selected Studies Program provides for a total of at least 120 credits. Among the courses taken outside of the College of Arts and Sciences, no more than 24 credits may be taken in any one school or college of the University. Proposals should avoid overspecialization. Proposals that seem to aim at narrow vocational training are likely to be rejected. Students whose applications indicate that they can best be served by a traditional major are likely to be rejected and referred to the appropriate department. The B.S. in Selected Studies includes at least 75 credits of arts and sciences courses and a minimum of 50 credits in courses numbered at the 300-level or higher (upper division). It includes a minimum of 36 credits of courses in departments offering the B.S. degree at Syracuse University and exhibit a specialization of no more than 60 credits justifying the title of the program.
