Change of Academic Program

Once students are admitted to a degree program, they are not expected to change to another degree program. Curriculum patterns are generally sufficiently flexible to permit a student, with the assistance and approval of an advisor, to select a wide range of courses in a program of study appropriate to the student’s own professional goals. In order to effect a change from one degree program to another, a student must fulfill the prerequisites of admission to the new degree program and submit a written request (to include the student’s GothicNet ID) and a new 250-500 word essay discussing his/her goals and objectives for the new program to the Director of Graduate Admissions to approve the change.
