The Center for Individualized Learning contributes to pre-eminence at MSU Denver by offering students and faculty the opportunity to engage in individualized, interdisciplinary and innovative educational initiatives. Students use the Individualized Degree Program to craft their own majors and minors to address specific community needs and to meet their own unique educational goals. Credit for Prior Learning offers students the chance to integrate learning gained in the workplace with new learning, and when appropriate, to earn credit for that learning. Faculty reach across disciplines and Schools, collaborating with the Center, to develop, ‘incubate” and test new academic programs that meet emerging community needs such as Fire and Emergency Services Administration, Game Development and Design, and Aerospace Systems Engineering Technology. The IDP concentration provides a curricular vehicle for new interdisciplinary majors and minors that cannot be accommodated in existing academic departments. Metro Meritus invites the growing number of older adults in the community to engage in lifelong learning, creating an intergenerational learning environment for all students.
