Individualized Studies

Bachelor of Arts

The B.A. in individualized studies is a relatively new program that allows high achieving students to create their own major.  Working closely with a team of faculty advisors, students can design a rigorous academic program that draws on the foundations of multiple disciplines that have not been traditionally paired. All individualized studies students learn to approach topics and solve problems using interdisciplinary methods, which prepares them well for today’s complex society.
