- Off-Campus Study
Self-designed majors are for the mature student with special interests and abilities and the motivation to design a unique major not available through existing college programs. Self-designed majors should be structured out of courses from different academic departments or disciplines, supplemented in most cases by independent study. The student’s academic ability, motivation, justification and coherence in planning will be considered when a proposal for a self-designed major is evaluated for approval.
Ripon College faculty and professional staff are dedicated to helping you reach your goals, whatever they may be and however often they may change along the way. It’s part of our value statement to you.
As a student at Ripon, you will be assigned a faculty adviser based on your area(s) of interest. You will meet with your faculty adviser throughout your time as a student to discuss your current aspirations, plan your course schedule and plot a future trajectory. Staff in the Office of Constituent Engagement and Career Services help to match your interests to concrete goals and construct a plan for success, offering support through three stages of career development – planning, exploration and search. Student Support Services provides tutoring and additional academic and skill development, as well as tools to help with note-taking, exam preparation, goal-setting and time management. Mentors in the Collaborative Learning Center provide in-depth, one-on-one or group mentoring for students about class projects and college-level writing, and can share problem-solving strategies to overcome academic obstacles.
