gram) of the intended area of focus; another document from the student indicating the preference of advisor; a proposal to the Council of Departmental Representatives with recommendations to Executive Committee. Upon the recommendation of the faculty advisor and the Dean, the Executive Committee is authorized to name students to the Artist and Scholar Honors Program. A faculty mentor will be appointed by the Executive Committee to serve as advisor and to work with the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in responding to unusual curricular or instructional needs of the Honors student. The Executive Committee will appoint four members of the faculty, representing both artists and scholars, to oversee the program as well as student progress. These faculty may also advise students in the program, and the Honors Council will also serve as a cross-departmental liaison for Honors students. An Artist and Scholar Honors Program student must complete the Core Curriculum (pg. 18) by election, exemption, or waiver. Apart from that, the student designs the balance of the curriculum in consultation with his or her advisor. At the end of each term, or immediately after a term’s work is reported on an updated transcript, the faculty advisor of an Honors Program student will submit a statement to the Honors Council concerning the student’s progress. On the basis of these statements, the Honors Council will recommend to the Executive Committee that the Honors Program status of the student be renewed or revoked. Dual Degree in Music and Engineering / Dual Degree in Music and Business These programs are intended for students who seek the professional training in applied or academic musical studies associated with the School of Music, Theatre & Dance in combination with the technical studies associated with the College of Engineering or academic and professional studies associated with the Ross School of Business. These dual degrees are open to students enrolled in both schools. They lead to concurrent bachelors degrees from both units and are intended primarily for students who enroll as freshmen in either unit. For specific course requirements, and to develop the best plan of study, students should consult their advisors, the Assistant Dean for Students in Business or Engineering and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in the School of Music, Theate & Dance. It is the student’s responsibility to plan the academic program and maintain contact with advisors in the two fields, as well as become familiar with the academic policies and requirements as described in the Bulletin of the College of Engineering, the Bulletin for the Ross Business School, and the Handbook of the School of Music, Theatre & Dance. Candidates for the combined Bachelor of Science in Engineering, Bachelor of Business Administration, and degrees offered by the School of Music, Theatre & Dance, must complete the degree programs in both the College of Engineering, or the Ross School of Business, and the School of Music, Theatre & Dance, and maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0, and good scholastic standing in both units. It is usually possible for students electing 16-18 credits per term to meet all requirements in eleven or twelve terms. Other Dual Degrees Students may apply to a dual degree program with other units of the University at any point in their studies. However, we recommend applying before the beginning of the junior year. Students participating in this program will have an academic advisor in both units and both degrees will be granted simultaneously upon graduation.
