The Individualized Minor offers students the opportunity to create a minor on topics not otherwise available at IU. The minor may be connected with the College's annual Themester or colloquia offered through IU's centers and institutes, or on any subject for which the student is able to make a compelling case. Minors are approved by a committee of faculty based on an application and an essay in which the applicant answers the following questions:
- Does the minor resemble others that are regularly offered at IU Bloomington? If so, how is the proposed IMP minor different from others it may resemble?
- What is the principle of coherence unifying courses for the minor?
- What do you hope to learn from completing this minor?
- How does the minor complement your major? Is there a close thematic connection? Does it address an interest not otherwise reflected in your degree?
