About Individualized Studies
The individualized studies program provides students with a vehicle to design their own unique programs of study. The program allows students to investigate a theme, an issue, a problem, or a particular career interest and to formulate a specific curriculum accordingly. Individualized studies provides appreciable academic advisement so that students can integrate and synthesize several academic fields.
Students may combine any two compatible minor programs or develop their own programs of study by drawing upon the offerings of two to four different academic fields. Students in both tracks complete all college-wide degree expectations: the Intellectual Foundations requirements and unrestricted electives. Both tracks require a senior-level integrating research project as a culminating degree experience.
