At least one-half of the semester credit hours offered for the degree shall be in a single field of concentration. It is incumbent upon the student to elect courses with at least three instructors, two of whom represent the field of the graduate major. In addition, the student may select a minor closely allied to the major, to the thesis subject, or to the interests of the student. When a minor is listed as suitable by the major department, no special permission is necessary, but at least one-half of the minor must be completed in residence at TWU and in a field offering a graduate degree program.
