About the Custom Designed Major
The Custom-Designed Major enables students to pursue an individualized course of study at Drexel University not readily available through an existing major, or a combination of existing majors and/or minors. The program is designed for highly motivated students, whose interdisciplinary curiosity and career ambitions cannot be satisfied by a traditional, preexisting major.
The major offers students an opportunity for an early intensive research experience; incorporates cooperative education as part of its degree requirements; and culminates in an original, interdisciplinary senior-year project.
