Individual Studies is the most flexible major offered by the College. Designed for students whose goals are not met by any other curriculum, Individual Studies offers students an opportunity to explore more than one career area at a time or simply to follow a program for personal enrichment while earning a degree or to upgrade work-related skills and knowledge. Although not specifically intended for students planning to transfer, it may serve the needs of those students as well. Although primarily elective, the Individual Studies program does require students to complete a minimum of 12 semester hours of credit in one academic discipline or area of concentration.
