Components

CHOOSING COMPONENTS

Choosing components for the IDS major is an important task, one that requires research and careful deliberation on the part of the student. Certain components may be difficult to complete because of restrictions imposed on non-majors during the early-registration period. There are also no guarantees that permission numbers are possible for some courses that are technically closed to non-majors. Some components that may require patience and diligence to complete due to departmental enrollment policies are: business, communication, and psychology.

COMPONENTS AND COURSES

The IDS major is comprised of two or three components following four possible configurations:

  • Configuration #1:  Two components of 21-15 credits
  • Configuration #2:  Two components of 18-18 credits
  • Configuration #3:  Three components of 15-12-9 credits
  • Configuration #4:  Three components of 12-12-12 credits
