Student-Designed Major


If you have a strong sense of what you’re interested in, but it just doesn’t seem to fit within a particular Clark major, then a student-designed major may be the best way to resolve your dilemma. A self-designed major gives you the flexibility to combine several disciplines to create an integrated, coherent program of study that still meets rigorous academic standards.

Examples of some recent student-designed majors include: aesthetics of architecture, music and technology, Japanese studies, psychology of marketing, religious studies, German studies, and creative writing. We encourage you to explore your choice of major and we will work with you to identify the academic direction that inspires you most.
