Note:


Students will craft their individual program of study in consultation with the department chair or another advisor from the department. While writing a thesis is not a requirement of the major, the option is available (RTS495 ) to those who are planning to pursue graduate studies or who would otherwise benefit from the experience of undertaking a complex, guided research project

Possible Concentrations


Both majors and minors may, but need not, choose to build their program of study around a particular area by focusing their elective courses in specific ways. The department suggests the following possible concentrations. The student would select four courses (12 credits) from any given area.

Note: At times Special Topics Courses (RTS 399 ) or Independent Study Courses (RTS499 ) may appropriately fall under a particular concentration as well.
