Individually Designed B.S.Ed.
The Individually Designed Major (IDM) B.S. Ed., is for self-motivated students interested in studying the fields prioritized in the College of Education and Social Services: education, social work, and human development and family studies. The Individually Designed Major is an interdisciplinary program of studies that gives students the opportunity to explore and develop their interests in children, families and communities, and the programs, policies, and processes that shape our communal and individual experiences. Students connect CESS courses with university-wide courses to create a major unique to their needs and interests that are not met through our existing programs. Students may, with permission, include graduate level courses as part of their program. An application and proposal for the IDM are required, and must be approved prior to declaring the major. First year students wishing to pursue the CESS Individually Designed Major may enter as Undeclared, and then work collaboratively with the CESS Assistant Dean of Academic and Student Affairs and the IDM Program Coordinator to develop their proposal and course sequence for their application during their first two semesters in the college. The program leads to a Bachelor of Science in Education (non-licensure). All students who participate in an individually designed major must complete a minor or certificate. No more than 6 credits may overlap between the major, minor or certificate.
120 total credits are required to complete the B.S.Ed.
