Find Your Best Fit

Students in Integrative Studies design a bachelor's degree that works best for them, by making connections among fields of study that fit their educational, career, and personal goals. The Integrative Studies major incorporates a set of three seminars designed to help students reflect upon their educational options and purposefully plan a degree they can use now and in the future. This major works well for students who have already earned some college-level credits, though the major is also appropriate for new students.
