Self-designed Concentration

In the self-designed concentration, you design your own degree, working closely with department faculty. You will plan a focused degree of your own definition that creates one to three integrated areas of study according to your interests, utilizes transfer credit and takes advantage of credit from prior learning.

Through reflection, research, writing and application, you will:

  • Gain experience in defining a major goal and work systematically to attain it
  • Learn from the rich disciplinary traditions that are directly relevant to your goals
  • Learn techniques for interdisciplinary scholarship, an approach that examines issues from multiple points of view and the relationships between different ways of knowing
