Individualized Major Program

About the Individualized Major Program

The Individualized Major Program (IMP) is an interdisciplinary program resulting in a B.A. from the College of Arts and Sciences. The IMP facilitates the creation of student-designed interdisciplinary majors whose primary emphasis is in the liberal arts. The IMP allows students with interests that cross traditional departmental and disciplinary boundaries to combine those interests in coherent and meaningful ways, building upon—and using in new ways—the resources available in the College, and bringing in expertise from the professional schools as needed.

The IMP also offers an Individualized Minor that allows students to define and pursue a cluster of courses that falls outside the standard curriculum and combine them in a transcriptable minor. This option may appeal to students with conventional majors across the campus, and it can also allow students to form their coursework associated with the College's annual Themester into a coherent program.
