An Individual Major is an opportunity for students to determine their own majors, given the courses available at UCD. If you have some concept that can't be served by an ordinary major program, this is for you. Also, it's a good way of getting the most out of your student fees. Both the College of Letters and Science and College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences offer individual major programs.

  • According to this page, the individual major program for the College of Ag has been "suspended indefinitely."

  • from what i understand, they do get logged, as when you apply for one they look for the records to see if something similar has already been created. —MiranPark
