Design-Your-Own Major

Design-Your-Own Major

Hanover has more than 30 majors, but what if you don’t find the one that’s just for you?

This is where Hanover’s unique self-designed major program comes in. While the title is self explanatory, the program allows a student to create and design a major according to their specific interests and passions. You are in complete control of this process and are responsible for choosing the professors, the core area of study and putting together the final proposal for properly declaring your self-designed major.
