Self-Designed (B.A., B.S.)

Choose your own path with a major that's suited specifically to your interests and career goals

The Self-Designed Major allows York College students to construct an individualized program of study using existing courses offered by one or more academic departments. A student interested in pursuing such an option must have a 3.0 or higher grade point average, and two faculty members representing the disciplines included in the proposed major must agree to serve as self-designed major advisors.

Finally, students must prepare a proposal for their plan of study that defines the title of their intended major, lists the courses which he or she plans to include in their program, and provides a rationale for the development of their self-designed major.

See more information about the Self-Designed Major, including course requirements, in the course catalog.
