Individualized Studies

Individualized Studies

Liberal Arts & Professional Studies

The Individualized Studies program is designed for students who have a desire to create their own path, challenging and defying the traditional boundaries of university study.

Are you convinced that York is the right place for you but don't see your "dream" program? Perhaps you'd like to combine majors in completely different fields, for example urban studies and computer science, or Spanish, women's studies, and public health. If you can imagine it, we can make it happen. Students drawn to Individualized Studies want to "redefine the possible", searching for answers in places where few have looked before.

This program is not open to students entering their first year of university. You are eligible to apply to the program at the end of your second year.

You will work closely with advisors to set up your program, choose classes and fulfill degree requirements. Graduating with an Individualized Studies degree will provide you with first-rate credentials and experiences to develop careers and pursuits off the beaten track, creating new models for Canada in the global arena.
