In addition to an elected field of concentration, a student may undertake an optional correlate sequence. Ordinarily no more than one (1) unit of course overlap is allowed between the correlate and the field of concentration.
The correlate sequence provides the opportunity to organize studies outside the major field of concentration, progressing from introductory to advanced work under the guidance of an adviser in the relevant department or program. A sequence usually consists of 6 units, selected to acquaint the student with the methodology of the field and to permit achievement of some depth of learning in at least one of its areas of knowledge. The mere amassing of units is not acceptable. Ordinarily, no more than 2 units may be courses taken at another school. Specific requirements for each sequence are noted in the individual department or program section of the catalogue.
Students interested in pursuing a correlate sequence should complete a Declaration of Correlate Sequence form available from the Office of the Registrar. For students pursuing more than one correlate, ordinarily no more than one (1) unit of course overlap is allowed between the two correlates.
