They must submit a plan of study to the Department of History, preferably in their first year of study at Laurentian University, indicating their thematic field of interest, and the three Arts disciplines that they propose to combine in the Major. The Interdisciplinary Studies Committee will review proposals in consultation with the chairs, directors, or coordinators of the academic units involved, who must sign off on the student’s plan of study before it can be approved. The student’s individualized course map will be approved by the Committee, review annually, and revised if necessary. A copy of the approved course map also will be shared with the Office of the Registrar for their records.
