Pursue your vision

Shape your degree to match your goals

HNU students have the option to self-design an interdisciplinary program of study that varies from the pre-designed programs. Students with professional interests that cross disciplinary boundaries often design courses of study that lead to their career goals.

The fine print:
All self-designed majors are reviewed by the VP and the Assistant VP for Academic Affairs and the approval process must be completed no later than the second semester of the junior year. Each term, the specific courses to be taken must be approved by each of the student’s academic advisors.
