  1. A customized major program is designed to meet needs not fully met by existing curricula. Its curriculum must not simply duplicate that of an existing university degree program. It should, however, compare favorably in coherence, scope and rigor with other baccalaureate curricula of the university. It should offer the breadth necessary to be considered a truly liberal education.
  2. Completion of the proposed customized major must require at least 52 quarter units. No more than 12 of the units to be applied to the major may also be used to fulfill general education requirements. At least 32 of the units must be upper division. Each student must complete one unit of MGMT 219 for every three quarters of residence at La Sierra University.
  3. The ZSB dean’s office must approve the title of the proposed major program which will appear on the student’s transcript and diploma. Subsequent changes in the program title must also be approved the dean.
