College of Continuing Education

  • Requirements for this program are current for Spring 2012
  • Required credits to graduate with this degree: 120
  • Required credits within the major: 50
  • Degree: Bachelor of Science
Founded in 1930, the Inter-College Program (ICP) embodies the University of Minnesota's commitment to individualized undergraduate education by providing cross-college, course/credit-based degree options. Drawing upon the curricular offerings of most of the University's colleges and departments, students design either a bachelor of arts (B.A.) or a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree incorporating a significant amount of coursework from at least two different colleges within the University system. Bachelor of science degrees are those that pertain to the physical or biological sciences, have significant quantitative or investigative tools/methods expectations, or have a pronounced applied/professional component (e.g., public health, education, business, social work). Most students design a degree drawing from two or three departmental areas from the University. Examples include addiction studies and psychology, or Carlson School of Management, manufacturing technology, and economics. ICP is most appropriate for self-directed students whose educational backgrounds and career and intellectual interests require both a clear personal focus and a flexible interdisciplinary approach. Interested students should attend an information session held several times each week. Academic advisers provide a detailed introduction to the program and help students begin the planning process. For more information on the Inter-College Program, visit www.cce.umn.edu/Inter-College-Program/.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Admission Requirements
Students must complete 50 credits before admission to the program.
Students are considered for admission based on a review of their application. The review includes factors such as GPA, grade trends, performance in coursework relevant to proposed areas of study, and demonstrated ability to meet curricular and developmental expectations of individualized undergraduate education. Students must have attended a program information session and an initial degree planning appointment with an adviser. Preferred benchmarks are 2.50 GPA and 50 semester credits completed. Students must develop a degree plan that includes: * Academic and career goals. * Courses proposed for the program. * Approval of the plan from at least two faculty or departmental advisers.
For information about University of Minnesota admission requirements, visit the Office of Admissions website.
General Requirements
All students are required to complete general University and college requirements including writing and liberal education courses.
