I am wondering whether any of you have designed your own major at your college, or plan to do so? I'm just curious about your experience. At my college (Smith), I know that it was possible to do this, but I knew of only a couple people who did. The two self-designed majors I remember hearing about there were Society and the Moving Picture and something like psychoneurobiology.

I'm thinking about it. I don't know if I'll go through with it but I might have a more "open" major. Say... combing neurobiology with math. The hesitation lies in the fact that this might just be a tangent of mine and within a few weeks I could grow tired of it.

is there a big difference between creating your own major and just concentrating your classes (and research if applicable) on that subject. Welshie mentioned "neurobiology and math" which is just computational neurobiology, a topic many good departments have research in...just out of curiousity, would a neuroscience major not suffice? is it better to make your own that specific pre-grad/med?
