Students who apply to be an IDS major must:

  • Demonstrate how your custom degree will meet career objectives.
  • Decide which combination you'd like to pull together and have your plan approved by an advisor.
  • Some  combinations students have had success with.
  • Apply early enough in their educational path to be able to accomplish the degree requirements.
  • If you have high credits already (over 60) please consult with an advisor as soon as possible to see if an IDS option could still work for you.
