Individualized Studies Major

What Will I Learn?

If your interests cut across traditional disciplines or departments, or your career or professional goals cannot be met by other programs at Plattsburgh, the individualized studies major can help meet your needs. You can create your own major with the help of a faculty adviser.

What is Unique About Our Program?

Choose a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts Degree

A bachelor of arts degree must include a minimum of 90 credit hours in liberal arts courses; a bachelor of science degree must include a minimum of 60 credit hours in liberal arts courses. Both options require completion of SUNY Plattsburgh’s General Education Program, 42 credits of courses at the 300–400 level, and 120 total credits. Both options require 1–3 credits of intensive writing through the INT 402 course, in addition to completion of an advanced writing course in a minor or concentration (or ENG 301 or other approved AWR course).
