School of Individualized Study

Can you recognize problems and identify solutions? Are you a creative, out-of-the box-thinker? Do you have entrepreneurial pursuits? Are you a risk-taker? Will you shape the community around you?

SOIS degrees allow students to explore the integration of multiple degree programs to create a customized program that meets specific career aspirations.
