Prospective majors must submit an official letter of application that describes the studentandamp;#8217;s proposed field of concentration within the joint major (e.g. sixteenth-century British, nineteenth-century American, modern Irish, African American, etc.); the letter must be endorsed by an adviser in each department. This letter calls upon the student to plan a course of study, though some flexibility is permissible as the student pursues this planned curriculum. Students are strongly encouraged to file their applications at the start of their junior year. Applications must be submitted to the director of undergraduate studies in each department before the student registers for the first semester of the senior year.
