Individually Designed B.S.Ed.
The Individually Designed Major 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. Proposals for the IDP should be developed during the student’s Sophomore year; however, exceptions may be made given extenuating circumstances. The program leads to a Bachelor of Science in Education (non-licensure).
