Which program draws the most students to Metropolitan State University? Since Metropolitan State began in 1971, the individualized bachelor of arts program has usually been the largest single “major,” and it also has the largest number of graduates.

Learn more about how a student tailors a focus to build from his or her educational background, and to meet individualized learning goals for the BA degree.

You’ll find out how a student can earn university credit through Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) of learning from non-university settings such as work- or community-based learning and training, as part of the Individualized BA or other majors, along with other alternative strategies such as Student-Designed Independent Studies (SDIS).

Facilitators are Stanley Hatcher, academic advisor, and Marcia Anderson, academic advisor and coordinator of Student-Directed Learning (SDL), College of Individualized Studies (CIS).
