Multidisciplinary majors are also possible for the creative student who wishes to plan his/her own major program as an alternative to the above majors. The multidisciplinary approach to a major program paves the way for majors that are responsive to the contemporary student's quest for relevance and meaning, while not relaxing the standards which the College has set for the more traditional majors. A multidisciplinary major is defined as an academic program focusing on a significant global problem. It must receive approval from the Vice President for Academic Affairs and the student must have a sponsoring advisor.   
 
The flexibility of the Thomas More academic program enables many students to complete the requirements for two majors.
