Program allows students to create majors

Zzzzz
LSA senior John Valencia takes a quick nap before his class in the MLB
basement.

When LSA senior Dean Tsai de-
cided to study neurobiology, he had
a small problem - his major didn't
exist.
But Tsai managed to pursue this
area by creating a major through the
Individual Concentration Program
(ICP).
Located in Angell Hall, the ICP
enables students to create a special-
ized concentration that the Univer-
sity does not offer. A few concen-
trations that are not offered include
urban studies, neuroscience, crimi-
nology and international relations.
The ICP is not a Bachelor of
General Studies or a double major
- it requires students to create a
program within the LSA curricu-
lum, and all basic LSA requirements
still must be met.
ICP counselor Lina Wallin said

students must focus on a specific
goal and a unifying theme when re-
searching their concentration.
After the research has been com-
pleted, Wallin said, an ICP commit-
tee extensively reviews students'
proposals to determine if the pro-
gram is too similar to an existing
concentration in LSA.
Wallin said the concentrations
are intended to fulfill the necessary
background for the students to con-
tinue in their specific field of study.
Eric Lai is an ICP senior seeking
a degree in philosophical literature.
Whereas the philosophy major
dealt more with conventional
philosophies, he said, he wanted to
concentrate on analytical philoso-
phy with a focus on ethics, episte-
mology and existentialism.

But now he said he is planning to
apply to law school and is concerned
about the validity of an ICP degree.
"It is hard to deal with explain-
ing what the major is in terms of
law unless you have strong recom-
mendations. You must make them
believe that your ICP is valid and
worthy," Lai said.
"You definitely have to be ag-
gressive in terms of being your own
counselor in terms of the major you
want. You have to be committed to
the subject area and feel strongly
about the proposal."
ICP urban development senior
Jack Bransfield said he thinks the
program should be transformed into
a department.
Bransfield said he is preparing to
continue to graduate school in archi-

tecture. He said he hoped the back-
ground in urban development could
secure a broader base of knowledge
than thewarchitecture school taught.
Bransfield said he thinks the
program offers little counseling
support, and left him feeling "that I
hadn't gotten a solid body of
knowledge - really scatter-shot
and difficult."
But he offered some advice for
people planing to enter ICP.
"It is necessary they make sure
there is no other way they could
have done the plan in any established
concentration," he said. "If taking
the program, then the counselors
should be more explicit in stating
the pros and cons on the plan. In my
case they said 'it's very interest-
ing"' and later accepted it.
