Looking for a program that meets your unique career goals? Increasingly, employers want workers who have the knowledge and skills to cut across traditional occupational categories. If you have a career objective that can’t be met with an existing degree program, then this could be your answer. You’ll work with an employer, occupational advisor and a college advisor to identify the desired knowledge and skills. Then you’ll put together a program to meet those needs. The Individualized Technical Studies option gives you the flexibility and the outcomes you need for your unique situation.
