Individualized Majors and Minors
Although each of the department’s programs is designed to allow you some degree of choice in how you meet the requirements, you may find that none of the identified majors or minors provides the combination of courses which best fits your desired focus. In such a case, you are encouraged to discuss with the department faculty the possibility of an individualized major or minor. There are three basic ways to create such a program. All begin with an effort on your part to clarify your goals, considering the reasons (career and otherwise) which are leading you to seek such a program.

The first way would be to consider a major in entrepreneurial leadership (ENT). That major allows you to select a set of six courses chosen in such a way that, when combined with the ENT core, they form a coherent package which you and your adviser think would best enable you to achieve your goals. This selection can be approved by the lead instructor in the ENT program.

The second way would be to consider a general business major. In that major you would take the business core plus a selection of seven courses which form a coherent package. This selection can be approved by the department chair.

The third way would be to construct a whole major or minor in such a way that the selection forms a coherent package. This selection would need to be approved by the department and by the faculty curriculum review committee.
