The Individualized Major B.A. degree is meant to meet the needs of motivated students who are pursuing a liberal arts education, but whose interests cannot be fulfilled by established majors. The program is based on interdisciplinary study and it encourages creative and initiative-minded students to develop a challenging and closely-supervised academic program.
Some examples of Individualized Majors are:
- Electronic Media
- Global Studies
- Health Information Management and Technology
- Child Advocacy
- Corporate Communications
- Organizational Communication
- Applied Mathematical Economics
- Peace Studies
- Family Studies
- Law and Justice
- American Studies
- Medieval Studies
- Latino Studies
- Gender Studies
- Biochemistry Culture and Aesthetics of a certain time period or geographical area (music, art, history, literature, philosophy…)
- Communications and Journalism
- Pre-Law and Philosophy
Career opportunities will depend on the focus of the major, but the skills demonstrated by developing such an original and rigorous program of study are very likely to impress potential employers. Furthermore, students will be prepared to pursue graduate studies in a variety of disciplines
