Learn what you love, and love what you learn.

When one size doesn’t fit all, create your own path.

Tailor your educational experience to meet your needs, combining various subjects to design the perfect major for YOU.

With the Degree Design Lab, you’ll brainstorm with professionals devoted to crafting your perfect pathway rather than trying to fit you into an existing major. And through this multi-disciplinary approach, you’ll prove your ability to think outside the box, taking charge of your education and your future.
