Custom-Designed Major

The Bachelor of Science in the Custom-Designed Major (CSDN) empowers students to pursue individualized courses of study at Drexel University, not readily available through an existing major, or a combination of existing majors and minors. CSDN is designed for highly motivated students whose interdisciplinary curiosity and career ambitions cannot be satisfied by a traditional major.

Although their academic interests are incredibly diverse, CSDN students share several common traits. They are fiercely independent, creative innovators, able to negotiate big picture ideas alongside the small details necessary to accomplish a large-scale project. They have demonstrated academic and extracurricular achievements that place them among the top tier of their peers.

For additional information about applying to this program, contact Associate Director Dr. Katie Barak.
