Individualized Major/Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: School of Integrative Studies

The Individualized Major or Minor (IM) offers students the opportunity to create a curriculum around their own academic interests and life goals. Students use the Individualized Program to develop integrative majors or minors that Edgewood does not offer, or they use the program to add a specialized, integrative minor to a current major. The Individualized Program is a good option when students have interdisciplinary goals that are not possible to achieve with an existing Edgewood College major or minor, and when students want to pursue a major or minor we do not have in the catalogue, but for which we have relevant courses available. It is not an appropriate choice when students do not have a clear sense of purpose, or when students are approaching graduation without another workable plan. Students contemplating an Individualized Major or Minor will need to do some careful planning in order for it to be approved. Students should begin planning as early as possible to develop their academic plan. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate the proposal, do the needed research, and write a proposal narrative that will be compelling to the IM Review Committee.
