Why Choose Individualized Studies?

Individual interests or unusual career goals may lead an Elmira College student to customize an academic program to meet his or her intellectual and professional aspirations.

What Individualized Studies Will Teach You

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, Elmira College 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 a student customizes the program to meet their academic needs.
