Agriculture: Individualized Programs, B.S.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Degree

Individualized program opportunities have been developed to assist students with academic goals that cross several disciplines. The procedure for entering an individualized program is as follows:

  1. The student must meet with the Associate Dean for Instruction to request permission to pursue an individualized program. During this meeting, the student will outline goals and learning objectives that explain why an individualized program best meets those desired outcomes. The Associate Dean for Instruction will explain the program, its objectives and possible risks involved that include limitations to prospective employment and acceptance for advanced graduate degree work.
  2. If permission is granted, the Associate Dean for Instruction will direct the student to meet with the Assistant Dean for Advising and Student Support to develop an appropriate plan of study.
  3. The student’s academic record will be updated to reflect admission into the individualized program and the current academic advisor will be notified of this transition.
  4. The Assistant Dean for Advising and Student Support will serve as the primary academic advisor for students pursuing the individualized program. Students are encouraged to consult with faculty in their chosen areas of interest while developing their program.
  5. The Director of Undergraduate Studies for Individualized Programs will be a faculty member who will provide oversight of the process, review the program periodically, and approve students’ plans of study.
