Individualized Major

Individualized Major

The doors of Boston are open to you. Your curiosity knows no boundaries. Your motivation is high, your resources limitless. Your major is your own.

Students who pursue an individualized major are pioneers. Explorers. Chemists who combine a base of political science with two parts sociology and a dash of literature to create something entirely new.

Whether it's a highly-specialized topic or a new field of study that merges several of your passions, the individualized major is designed for students whose career goals and intellectual interests can best be served through a carefully-constructed individualized major program. Students who choose an individualized major are highly-motivated, self-directed learners who work closely with a faculty advisor throughout their program.

Students are encouraged to begin planning their program as early in their academic career as possible. Learn more through your Academic Advisor or the Office of Academic Affairs.
