University Major: Design Your Own Major

HomeUniversity Major: Design Your Own Major

Earn a degree tailored to your unique interests and goals

Program Highlights

Do you tend to think outside the box? Are you one of those people who just can’t decide between one major or another? If you don’t want to compartmentalize your goals and plans into just one major, think about developing your own.

For ambitious, driven students, the university major at Fontbonne University allows you to combine two or more areas of study in order to create a unique learning plan designed to meet specific career or graduate school goals.

You cannot declare a university major before coming to campus, but once you get on campus, establish a minimum grade point average, and make connections with the fields that interest you, you will work with faculty members to develop a customized path, approved by the Undergraduate Academic Committee.

You’ll graduate ready to show the world — and future employers — that you have initiative, curiosity, and vision.

No matter how you define your major, you will receive individualized attention as well as in-class and in the field opportunities, positioning you for success whether you continue with graduate studies or move directly into your field.

  • Work with an advisor and faculty in various areas to be sure your plan is sound
  • Build a major unique to you, with courses from two or more programs
  • Enjoy the flexibility and wide range of offerings Fontbonne provides
  • Combine transfer credits into your program
  • Build relationships and network with faculty and advisors in multiple areas
  • Consider hundreds of study abroad opportunities available through Fontbonne
  • Build in internships, practicums, job shadowing and other real-world experience
