In conjunction with a campus-wide pilot program, seven undergraduate majors and degree programs in the College of Letters & Science have published Three-Year Plans in the 2020–2021 edition of Guide. These optional plans are the first of their kind in the College.
AIM was tasked with leading this initiative in L&S. Analysis of time-to-degree data for all L&S graduates helped identify programs with a higher than average rate of students graduating in fewer than four years.
