Inter-College Program B.S.
Founded in 1930, the Inter-College Program (ICP) embodies the University of Minnesota's commitment to individualized undergraduate education by providing cross-college, course/credit-based degree options. Drawing upon the curricular offerings of most of the University's colleges and departments, students design either a bachelor of arts (B.A.) or a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree incorporating a significant amount of coursework from at least two different colleges within the University system. Bachelor of science degrees are those that pertain to the physical or biological sciences, have significant quantitative or investigative tools/methods expectations, or have a pronounced applied/professional component (e.g., public health, education, business, social work). Most students design a degree drawing from two or three departmental areas from the University. Examples include addiction studies and psychology, or Carlson School of Management, manufacturing technology, and economics. ICP is most appropriate for self-directed students whose educational backgrounds and career and intellectual interests require both a clear personal focus and a flexible interdisciplinary approach. Interested students should attend an information session, which are held several times each week. Academic advisers provide a detailed introduction to the program and help students begin the planning process.
