The Self-Designed Studies program of Heidelberg University allows you to “create their own future” by constructing a curriculum that fits your career goals. You'll work with two faculty mentors to design the major and coursework that will need to be approved by the Provost.


The majors of the Self-Designed Studies program of Heidelberg University will also complete either the General Education Requirements or the Honors Curriculum. The Self-Designed Studies option should normally be adopted by the end of the sophomore year.
