CAS Self-Designed Major

If you are a student in the College of Arts and Sciences, you have the unique opportunity at Suffolk to create a CAS Self-Designed Major (CSDM).

By taking courses from two or more departments or programs, you can create a major that is not otherwise offered at Suffolk. With guidance from your faculty mentors, you will develop a semester-by-semester plan for your major. If your plan is approved, you'll follow your unique curriculum and complete an interdisciplinary senior capstone project. Students should apply no later than the sophomore year.

To get started, review the CSDM requirements and contact Sharon Lenzie, Assistant Dean, Student Academic Affairs & Director, CAS Honors Program.

To apply, complete the CSDM Application form [PDF] and CSDM Proposal form [PDF].
