"When I came to York, I knew I wanted to study something different — something unique. My program of interest regarding sustainability was not offered as an undergraduate program, and my interests regarding economics, the environment, and society were too far spread across various faculties. I chose the Individualized Studies program because it allowed me to create an undergraduate degree that did not yet exist — Economic Sustainability. The program allowed me to design my major to obtain the education I believed would be the most beneficial for my career and life goals. Through the Individualized Studies program, I was able to take courses across multiple faculties, allowing me to approach the challenges of today with an interdisciplinary background."
