Millsaps College offers the opportunity to design a major to best fit your personality, career goals, and specific educational needs. The self-designed major is a customized major that you design, working closely with appropriate faculty. The curricular, instructional, and administrative framework for the pursuit of a self-designed major is not, by contrast with that of standard majors, already in place. It must be constructed by a special effort. Although members of the faculty and administration of the College stand ready to help you along the way, the initiative for this special effort lies with you. Consequently, a higher degree of self-motivation may be demanded if you are pursuing a self-designed major as opposed to a more established route to graduation.
