About this Program

This program requires students to design their own individualized degree plans within a framework that includes communication skills, vocational interests, critical thinking, responsible citizenship, multicultural perspectives and lifelong learning, as well as previous coursework from other institutions. Examples of programs students have designed include combinations of study from two different colleges such as political science and business administration. Or a student might focus on a broad general theme such as the environmental movement, international development, and Third World tourism or community development.
