A graduate specialization is a focused group of courses within one or more major or degree programs. Students declare a specialization when applying for admission to a degree program or when they develop and submit their plan of study (memorandum of courses) for approval. Courses taken for a specialization count toward both the specialization and the degree requirements. Specializations are also listed on the student transcripts.
