Individualized Majors

James H. Hegarty, Director of Academic Special Programs

Faculty from other disciplines also support this program.

Individualized Majors (IMs) give students an opportunity to design their own major or complete a major not regularly offered by Principia.  IMs draw upon existing Principia courses and can include courses successfully completed at other institutions. IMs can be an original unique design.  Recent examples of IMs include: art history, theatrical design, and film studies. IMs can also be built from a template. A template for a Sociology and Anthropology Individualized Major has recently been approved. To participate in an IM program, students must work with a faculty advisor to develop an original plan for a major that must be approved by the College Curriculum Committee. All IMs must also follow all requirements for the B.A. or the B.S. degree. For more information on the IM program please contact the Director of Academic Special Programs.

Principia College does not offer individualized minors.
