Individualized Studies is designed for students whose academic interests are best met by a program of study that they tailor to suit themselves. Students define a subject and theme that fits their interests, find a professor who will act as mentor and eventually grade their thesis, and assemble a bundle of courses from across the university, all linked by their relevance to the central project for the final year. The program advisor helps the students navigate the process and, when all is ready, gives permission to enrol in the major. Students can apply to the program — usually in their second year — with a minimum of 24 credits and a maximum of 66. yorku.ca/laps/programs/indv
