Mission and Goals

The purpose of the Self-Designed Major is to permit students in good academic standing to fulfill their personal academic objectives and complete their degree at Carroll College through an integrated program of study that is not possible through an existing major. The program should draw on the curricula of two or more disciplines and create a coherent academic focus. The student who wishes to pursue a Self-Designed Major will choose a principal advisor and two additional faculty who will work with the student to plan coursework that will provide breadth and depth in the chosen disciplines.

Student Learning Outcomes

Students completing the Self-Designed Major will define outcomes in consultation with their faculty advisory committee.
