Choice is a powerful thing—especially when it comes to your education. With so many interests and passions, you’re not looking for just any cookie-cutter bachelor’s degree program. You want something more meaningful. More personal. In other words, you want options. And at Lesley, you’ll find them. Lots of them. Discover the possibilities. Make your program a perfect fit.

Self-Designed Programs

Maybe the academic discipline you’re interested in doesn’t exist yet. With a self-designed major, you can combine studies to develop your own plan. If you have a minimum GPA of 3.0, you can apply to the program in your second semester.

When you apply, you’ll submit a program proposal that includes:

  • A personal statement
  • A description of your intended concentration, why this focus of study makes sense, and how it meets your learning goals
  • Potential independent studies or internships you plan to pursue
