10 The major requires a minimum of 45 upper-division units ( level). All 45 units must be completed with a grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher. 9

11 Up to 21 units may be transferred toward completion of the major. 10

12 The Individually Designed Thematic Option allows you to pursue a major that is not available at Towson University, but is offered at other colleges and universities. This program places special responsibilities on the student: 11

13 First, the student must find the model for the major she or he wishes to pursue in the catalog of another university. Then, the student must determine that Towson University offers the specific or equivalent courses necessary to complete the major. 12

14 Second, the student must meet with the Director of IDIS to ask for preliminary approval of the proposed major. 13

15 Third, with the assistance of the Director of IDIS, the student identifies a professor with the necessary expertise who is willing to serve as his or her major adviser. 14

16 Fourth, under the guidance of the major adviser, the student must write a program of study that includes a name/title for the individually designed thematic option, a description of its goals, and a list of required and elective courses. 15

17 After formal approval by the faculty adviser, the student, and the Director of IDIS, the agreement is signed. This constitutes the student’s major. We have now created a new major tailored to your career goals! A template for the program of study is available on the IDIS website: Click on Individually Designed Thematic Option, then click on “program of study”. 16

18  T.U. has an Intentional Advising Program  Students are given academic advising across all four years.  Advising is designed to meet your needs at different stages of your T.U. experience. From the first year through graduation, each year has a different focal point: transition, focus, engagement, commencement.  IDIS advisers can help make your dreams into realities. 17
