What will I learn?

For qualified undergraduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences, Fairfield University gives the unique opportunity to create and pursue a multifaceted, collaborative major not currently offered by the College. The Individually Designed Major allows you to develop an academic program to enable you to pursue a career path that coincides with your ambitions, values and passions. Our faculty guide students to ensure they're ready to take the next step in their lives ?whether that be gaining meaningful employment, or furthering their studies at a graduate or professional school.

Designing your own major requires a senior project that pulls together and showcases the range of your studies. You are also required to maintain a portfolio to review, reflect, self-assess and document the progress made throughout your experience. Upon graduation, you will submit a final assessment of your major to a review panel.
