Self Designed Majors


Students who design their own college degree work closely with faculty advisors to choose a path through the curriculum tailored to the students’ specific interests and learning goals. Students ordinarily complete major proposals by the first semester of their junior year, and transfer students may be able to apply courses completed at another institution toward their self-designed major degree requirements.
