Individualized Studies Concentration
The Liberal Studies Individualized Concentration is open by admission only. Since students wishing to pursue this major are seeking freedom from the requirements normally set by disciplinary majors, they must demonstrate their academic maturity by meeting the following admission requirements:
1. The student must have completed a minimum of 30 semester hours.
2. The student must have a minimum cumulative academic grade point average of 3.3.
3. The student must identify one or more advisers (referred to as Program Advisers) drawn from the disciplines included in the Program of Study, who will provide them with guidance required to complete their Program of Study.
4. The student must submit and have accepted a prospectus formed in three parts: (1) a list of a minimum of 2 disciplines to be used in the major; (2) a list of courses and time-line for taking the courses, developed in consultation with the program adviser(s) and approved by the department chair of the disciplines represented in the student’s major of study; (3) a typed essay of 500-750 words in length describing why the student has chosen this program of study, how (s)he plans to coordinate the disciplines and why.
