The Disciplinary Major

The Major Qualifying Project (MQP)

To provide students with the opportunity to show that they can apply all the appropriate facts, theories, methodologies and analytic skills acquired throughout their course work to framing and solving a problem at a level expected of an entry-level professional, students must complete a nine credit hour project in their major. The project topic may be theoretical, experimental or design, as appropriate to the discipline and student interests. The MQP is the culmination of the student's work in the major (consisting of at least 15 disciplinary courses) and usually occupies at least one-quarter of the final year.
