Core Requirements

INDS 3800. Individualized Studies Seminar. 3 Hours.

During the concurrent, tandem course of the INDS 3800 Seminar and the INDS 3805 Lab , the assignments cumulatively build toward the final Individualized Academic Plan (IAP) by requiring students to design, implement, evaluate, and modify their individualized major curriculum proposals within thematic concentrations repeatedly, until their professional and personal goals mesh with their own proposed learning outcomes and the general learning outcomes of the Individualized Studies degree, including the four core fluencies of (1) baccalaureate-level written composition skills, (2) basic competency in statistical comprehension, (3) capable public presentation, and (4) collaborative problem solving. Prerequisite: 60 semester credits or an Associate’s degree. Corequisite: INDS 3805. FA, SP.

INDS 3805. Individualized Studies Lab. 1 Hour.

While assignments in INDS 3800 will engage students in a continuous process of self-assessment and plan-building, the INDS 3805 Lab, on the other hand, will provide a scaffolding for student advisement. Students will work, through face-to-face individual meetings with a senior interdisciplinary adviser, deeply familiar with the curricula of departments around DSU, to refine and render technically compliant their IAPs. Corequisite: INDS 3800. FA, SP.
