Thanks to everyone who replied to my question about CIP codes for a self-designed major. We have decided to go with 30.9999 because we anticipate that many of our self-designed majors will have a mix of professional and liberal arts disciples in them.  For example, our first student was approved for a major that combines key elements of athletic training and biology.

And we use 24.0101 for our Liberal Studies major, which is *not* self-designed.  …Cel Johnson, University of San Diego

To counter the chorus of 30.xxxx’s, we use 24.0101 Liberal Arts and Sciences/Liberal Studies

We’ve added a self-designed undergraduate major.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to what CIP code I should classify it in?  I’m thinking Liberal Arts either:

 

24.0101 Liberal Arts and Sciences/Liberal Studies.   A program that is a structured combination of the arts, biological and physical sciences, social sciences, and humanities, emphasizing breadth of study. Includes instruction in independently designed, individualized, or regular programs

 

Or

 

24.0102 General Studies  An undifferentiated program that includes instruction in the general arts, general science, or unstructured studies.

 

Thanks,
