Individually Planned Major

The chance to personalize your major

You’re unique – why shouldn’t your course of study be unique, too? An individually planned major, or IPM, allows students to formulate and stylize their education based on their interests, desired career path and where they want to go in life. Each student’s individualism and creativity is allowed to flourish in this personalized, one-of-a-kind education.

Please understand that an IPM is not for everyone.

For most students, as they are planning their academic journey with an advisor, they’ll find that one of our existing majors in combination with a minor or a second major will meet their goals. This is especially true when that course of study is coupled with the right elective courses, internships, research experiences, and study abroad. But if you are seeking an academic program that truly cannot be offered with existing programs at Oglethorpe, then an IPM may be just the thing.

Current and Recent IPMs

  • Conservation Biology (2017)
  • Creative Writing (2016)
  • Indo-European Studies (Currently Enrolled)
  • Linguistics (Currently Enrolled)
  • Museum Studies(2016)
  • Physical Anthropology (Currently Enrolled)
  • Urban Development (2018)

You may also choose to do an individually planned minor (IPM). Oglethorpe’s individually planned minor serves the same basic role as does the individually planned major (IPM) except that the former is smaller in scope, more narrowly focused.

Minor in [Title of IP Minor] (TU)
