School of Arts and Letters

Individualized Major Program

While the needs of most students are well served by existing majors offered on campus, some students have academic interests that do not fit well into existing programs or traditional disciplinary boundaries.  The Individualized Major Program (IMP) in the School of Arts and Letters meets the needs of such students.  It serves disciplined and self - motivated students who may wish to major in traditional disciplines or interdisciplinary areas for which majors are not available at IUS, as well as those who wish to fashion unique and original interdisciplinary majors that reflect their individual experience, interests, and needs.  These include students whose work and life experiences suggest the need for fresh ways of organizing existing courses into meaningful new majors, as well as innovative students who wish to bring together course work in several disciplines to focus on a specific area or make unusual yet valid connections between areas that are rarely studied together. The IMP can also serve transfer students who wish to continue work started elsewhere in areas in which IUS has faculty expertise but no organized majors.
