The Individualized Study Program awards both BA and BS degrees to UMBC undergraduates who have used the INDS 335 class to assemble a degree proposal and had this proposal approved by the Individualized Study Committee (ISC).

Each of our students works with INDS staff and two hand-picked members drawn from the broader UMBC faculty and/or professional world to create this individualized education program. In addition to providing a core curriculum to help students combine courses from different disciplines, we also encourage internships and independent research.

From 1969-1979, INDS was called Option II. From 1979-2018, INDS was called Interdisciplinary Studies. In 2018, it was renamed Individualized Study.
