Letter of Specialization Proposals

Letter of Specialization proposals are not submitted through the Course and Curriculum Management System.

A Letter of Specialization recognizes study in a specialized field related to or part of a student's major. Letters of Specialization are issued only by academic departments, programs, colleges, or schools, and are not recorded on students' transcripts. Letters may be signed by Deans or Department Heads or Chairs (or designees) and students may choose to include Letters in their placement files.

A Letter of Specialization requires approval of the Department Curriculum Committee or other appropriate departmental committee and the Department Head or Chair. Where the Letter of Specialization is issued in an interdepartmental major, approval of the curriculum committees and Chairs or Heads of all involved departments is required. Approval beyond the department is not required, but the Dean, the Secretary of the Faculty Senate, and the Provost must be notified of the intent to offer a Letter of Specialization.
