The Individualized Study Program awards both BA and BS degrees to UMBC undergraduates who have used the INDS 335 class to assemble a degree proposal and had this proposal approved by the Individualized Study Committee (ISC).

Each of our students works with INDS staff and two hand-picked members drawn from the broader UMBC faculty and/or professional world to create this individualized education program. In addition to providing a core curriculum to help students combine courses from different disciplines, we also encourage internships and independent research.


Please note: UMBC is committed to creating an accessible and inclusive environment for all students, staff, and visitors. If you have difficulties accessing any of the materials on our site, please contact us so that we can provide an alternative format and remedy any accessibility challenges.
