Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

Some students in the College of Education and Human Development determine late in the four-year sequence that they no longer wish to complete the final requirements of their program (e.g., internship in their major) due to a change in career goals or not meeting the requirements to enroll in their capstone experience. To accommodate such students, the college has a plan whereby students may select the Individualized Studies major as a vehicle to complete a Bachelor of Science in Education degree. 

Students desiring an Individualized Studies program must consult with a college advisor in the Student and Academic Services Office and have approval of the Dean or Dean’s designee. If an Individualized Studies program is approved and the student is in a licensure program, the student will not be recommended for licensure upon completion of the undergraduate degree. Students graduating in Individualized Studies may reapply to complete licensure requirements after one year, and pending approval from program faculty and the Dean of the College of Education and Human Development.

To graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Education with a major in Individualized Studies, students must meet the following requirements:

  1. Earn a minimum of 122 total credit hours, including a minimum of 40 credit hours of courses numbered 3000 and higher;
  2. Complete a minimum of 30 credit hours in courses offered by College of Education and Human Development departments/programs (e.g., AMPD, EDFI, EDIS, EDL, EDTL, EDWF, EXSC, FCS, FMPD, HDFS, HP, ID, PEG, PEHE, SM, THEM);
  3. Completion of the BG Perspective requirements;
  4. Submit the Petition to Declare an Individualized Studies major form, which is available from the Student and Academic Services Office and is initiated during a consultation meeting with an advisor.
