Individualized Major

Develop your consciousness – express your individuality

Do you dream of having a very specific or unconventional career, but haven’t found a major that helps you achieve your dream? Our Individualized Major gives students the option to design their own undergraduate degree by taking their pick of courses from two existing majors at MUM.

This is a challenging program and is only for students that have displayed strong academic performance and high levels of academic responsibility. In order to join the program, students must settle in at MUM and then develop a written proposal that declares the purpose of the major and its curriculum. The proposal is then presented to the faculty advisor for approval. After that students will be closely guided through their curriculum by their advisor.

Students with a large number of transfer credits can be fast-tracked into the Individualized Major.
