The Individualized Major Program (IMP) enables students to pursue a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree through a course of study that meets IU Southeast’s Arts and Sciences requirements, conforms to general university standards of breadth and rigor, and is tailored to individual interests and goals. IMP students, working closely with their faculty sponsors, pursue interests that often, but not always, cut across the usual departmental and disciplinary boundaries.
The possible majors that students might pursue under the auspices of the IMP are limited only by the courses available at IU Southeast and the creativity of students and their faculty advisors. Some possible examples of majors include musical theater, arts management, international studies, environmental studies, screenwriting, Latin American culture, multimedia studies, and animal psychology.
Students wishing more information concerning the Individualized Major Program should consult with the School of Arts and Letters, Knobview Hall 110, (812) 941-2343.
Your major is not your career. Of course it can be.
A chemistry major can become a chemist, a history major can become an historian. But it is much more likely that your career choices will be enormously varied, and not tied to a specific major at all.
The 21st century workplace will challenge you to have many different jobs and most probably multiple careers. Your major will provide you a broad range of skills which will enable you to stay marketable in the fast-changing work world.
As you explore majors, be sure and take advantage of the following areas: college course bulletin, professors, upperclassmen, college alumni, family, friends and your Career Development Center Networking Program -- most importantly, don't panic! We're here to help.
In addition to the majors listed at the right, IU Southeast offers a number of certificate programs and academic minors to help students round out or expand their academic profile.
