PROPOSAL WRITING CLASS

Before you can declare BDIC as your major you must apply to, and complete the Proposal Writing Class offered each semester. This is where you will focus your educational goals, choose a faculty Sponsor and formulate the list of classes that will become your major. These elements form the core of your BDIC Proposal.

The BDIC Proposal is a multi-part document that presents the content, motivation and background for your BDIC concentration as well as your choice for a faculty Sponsor. It is a rationale for your BDIC major and addresses why your interests cannot be served by an existing major at the University.

HOW TO APPLY

To declare a BDIC major you must apply to the program and complete the Proposal Writing Class. Prospective students are encouraged to meet with a Peer Advisor or contact the department (bdic@umass.edu).
