What is the Individualized Major?

The College of Arts and Sciences offers a Bachelors of Arts Degree in the Individualized Major which transcends the boundaries of inquiry permitted by single-discipline departments. UofL's Liberal Studies program is part of a national trend, giving eligible students the opportunity to create individualized, interdisciplinary programs that reflect each student's career goals and/or intellectual interests. Such programs include — but are not limited to — the following themes:
