Individualized majors (IM) are becoming popular at many colleges throughout the country because they offer students the opportunity to create a customized liberal arts education that fits their career goals and interests. The IM will be available to Converse students at the beginning of the 2003-04 academic year.
Students with interdisciplinary academic interests that are linked in three or more departments may design a degree program that reflects those interests. This opportunity is for highly motivated students who will work with their academic advisor to establish the curriculum, and then must receive the approval of the department chairs in the included areas of study. The Curriculum Committee will have final approval of an IM candidate. IM students will be encouraged to incorporate collaborative undergraduate research and honors work into their course of study.
