Customized Academic Program

The Customized Academic Program (CAP) permits students to design individualized, interdisciplinary majors. The individualized majors use existing Huntington University courses but pull from multiple disciplines to create new programs of study designed to meet the needs of each student.

Students who declare CAP as their major must have a minimum GPA of 2.75 or higher and must complete an application describing their self-designed major, the goals for the major and the courses included in the proposed program. This application must be approved by an advisor, by the chair of each department in which the student plans to take nine or more hours, the registrar, and the Academic Concerns Committee. Students planning CAP majors must apply by the junior year and are encouraged to apply by the sophomore year.

The self-designed major must be significantly different from any existing major that Huntington University currently offers. Students may choose to pursue a bachelor of arts degree or a bachelor of science degree and must satisfy core curriculum requirements. Each self-designed major requires a culminating experience, either an extended internship or an in-depth thesis or senior project of 6 to 12 credit hours.

For more information regarding the Customized Academic Program, students may contact the Department of History and Political Science or the Office of the Registrar.
