Three female students gathered at a desk with books and notebooks. They are pointing their pens at a book and talking over it with smiles.Defiance College prides itself on its individual attention to student needs and interests. One way this occurs is through students being able to design their own majors. Self-designed majors are often interdisciplinary and allow students to weave interests from various curriculum into a powerful, unique learning experience.

In consultation with their academic advisors and faculty, students can create a major of up to 36 hours to meet their career or professional aspirations. Students may pair this major with an existing minor. Applications for self-designed majors are found on myDC and should be submitted by the end of the sophomore year to the Registrar's Office for approval.
