Individualized Majors Program
Are you having trouble finding a major that fits your unique interests, talents, and career goals? Do your interests cut across disciplinary boundaries and not fit within existing majors? Then the Individualized Major (IM) may be for you.
In the IM program, you'll work with a faculty advisor to create a one-of-a-kind major combining your choice of courses with an approved experiential learning component, such as an internship, extended study abroad, an honors or departmental thesis, a senior seminar, or a service-learning project. Some students combine an IM with a traditional major or minor.
Butler graduates have earned Individualized Major degrees in such areas as Asian Studies, Italian Culture, Principles of Design, Ancient Egyptian and Museum Studies, The Social-Cultural Bases of Religious Experience, Medical Illustration, and Urban Relationships and Development.
Is an IM Right for You?
Grounded in the liberal arts and sciences, Individualized Majors can involve courses from any of Butler’s colleges, at other universities, and independent study. We’ll help answer your questions about the Individualized Major and whether it’s right for you.
