Individual interests or unusual career goals may lead you to customize an academic program to meet your intellectual and professional aspirations.
Most students who pursue this option complete the requirements for an established major and sometimes a minor, but work far in advance with faculty and career advisors to set up a special internship for late in the junior year or in the senior year. A few work with two advisors to develop their own major from the hundreds of existing courses. In the past, students have developed individualized majors such as arts management, advertising, scientific illustration, sports marketing-management, museum studies, and art history.
A wide variety of career options are available based on how you customize the program to meet your academic needs.
The Baccalaureate degree in Individualized Studies (B.A. or B.S.) is awarded to students who have developed a major designed to meet specific personal and career goals.
