The Individualized Study Program (INDS) here at UMBC allows undergraduate students to design their own major by creating a degree plan that combines coursework from two or more of the traditional programs offered by other departments, colleges, and schools at UMBC. Students graduate with a uniquely customized degree: Click here to see degrees from recent graduates of INDS.
INDS provides students with two different degree tracks: Integrative Studies (INTS) and Multidisciplinary Studies (MDST). INTS is open to any UMBC student who is ready to tackle the unusual challenges of self-aware, scholarly integration required to write a formal degree plan. MDST is for transfer undergraduate students, students who have reached the end of their journey within a traditional major, or returning UMBC students looking to receive a bachelor’s degree.
