Individualized Interdisciplinary Major


Return to Majors, Minors, and Concentrations Return to: Majors, Minors, and Concentrations

Interdisciplinary Independent Major (IIM) at Goucher provides a framework for students with a broad range of interests to pursue a flexible, self-designed major that takes advantage of the diverse and innovative courses offered across the curriculum. Students must complete at least 44 credits in courses that focus on the methods and content of three disciplines and balance the contributions from each discipline. Students will form an IIM Committee (which includes the IIM advisor, primary faculty sponsor, and at least 2 other members who could be faculty or staff on campus).  Students who engage in an IIM will be able to achieve the goals of a) being able to articulate clearly the vision of the area of research and study, b) stating the methodology or methodologies that they employ, c) framing the history of and the new relations and offerings among disciplines in their areas, d) engaging in and describing their advanced areas of research into questions in their areas of study, and e) researching, imagining, and understanding the areas of opportunity for advanced study, employment, and careers in their chosen areas of interest.
