Individualized Studies Major

Students can pursue an Individualized Studies Bachelor of Arts degree or a minor. All Individualized Studies majors and minors are required to complete INDS 300: Academic Planning & Career Foundations.  

It is recommended that students take this course during their first semester as an Individualized Studies student. Additionally, all Individualized Studies majors are required to complete INDS 495: Capstone Seminar

Learn more with the Individualized Studies Program Student Handbook (PDF).

Dual Degrees

Students wishing to complete two degrees at the same time, such as Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science, must complete a minimum of an additional 30 semester hours more than the required 120-128 credit hours. 

Students must also complete all major requirements under both degrees, including separate minors if necessary.

Dual Majors

If a student is completing a dual major with Individualized Studies, no more than 12 credits may be duplicated between the majors.
