The Individualized Sequence of the Major in Interdisciplinary Studies allows a student, with the help of a faculty sponsor, to design a specialized program of study that is not offered by the University. This program is intended for the student whose specific interests cannot be accommodated within existing programs.
Some topics chosen by students include Classical Civilization, Agricultural Communication, Three Dimensional Design, and International Public Relations. The Individualized Sequence is typically a second or auxiliary major but may be proposed as a primary major.
Students who complete the Individualized Sequence will earn a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree and have their transcripts noted: "Major in Interdisciplinary Studies: Individualized Sequence:________________ " (the theme that is specified on the plan of study).
You must complete an approved plan of study containing 36-55 hours from at least two academic departments. If the Individualized Sequence is a student's primary major, courses included in the approved program may not be used to meet General Education requirements.
Changes in an approved plan of study must be authorized in advance. A letter outlining the proposed change, and countersigned by the faculty advisor, should be submitted to Marty Greenberg, Campus Box 4060, University College firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests for changes in more than one-sixth of the approved program constitute a new proposal and must be resubmitted subject to all the conditions of an initial application.
