Programs of Study

The contents of Rice's curricular programs are the collective responsibility of the faculty acting through their representatives in the Faculty Senate. There are specific guidelines for the creation, elimination, and modification of undergraduate and graduate programs, including undergraduate major concentrations and graduate major concentrations, undergraduate minors, as well as undergraduate certificates and graduate certificates

The General Announcements (GA) is the official Rice curriculum. In the event that there is a discrepancy between the GA and any other websites or publications, the GA shall prevail as the authoritative source.
