Creating a Plan of Study That is All My Own

Academics

Drexel has a huge catalogue of majors and various plans of studies for a student to choose from, but for those of us who can’t find that exact fit, Drexel has an answer in the form of the Custom-Designed (CSDN) Major program. The CSDN major is a plan of study for those students who can’t find the exact academic plan in multiple or a combination of majors and minors. I am one of these students.

With the CSDN major on my radar, I entered Drexel University with a sense of purpose to make my academic career my own.

When I first was looking into colleges during high school, I was hit with a dilemma over how to proceed with my higher education. I checked out many majors, switching plans of study for every application. That was until I found the CSDN program here at Drexel. The application process was both difficult and enriching. For students wishing to enter the program, a personal statement detailing why the traditional route isn’t right is required, as well as a detailed plan of study listing out all the classes that you’ll be taking during your 4+ years at Drexel. Kind of a daunting task that makes you look way into the future as a budding young adult, but it made me take a step back and reevaluate what I wanted out of my academic and professional career.

 

With the CSDN major on my radar, I entered Drexel University with a sense of purpose to make my academic career my own. I can’t be more happy for all the personal enrichment the program has brought my way. I’ve been able to explore academic interests and tie them to varied professional experiences while on co-op as well as experiences in other countries through study abroad. As a current senior, I’m more confident than I ever thought I would be to enter the professional world that lies beyond graduation.
