Interdisciplinary Studies Program


Introduction MEETINGS | MEETING Survey


The Interdisciplinary Studies program allows you to combine disciplines/areas of study in ways to help you achieve personal and professional learning goals by developing advanced knowledge and skills in two or three disciplines. This flexible program allows you to ‘design your own degree program’ by using coursework from multiple disciplines.

The difference between Interdisciplinary Studies and other majors is that it does not restrict students to one academic discipline, but rather it allows them to broaden their studies by selecting two or three 18-credit concentrations from a list of established minors. Besides flexibility, this program also offers depth of study, requiring all students in the program to complete 36 credits of advanced coursework.

This flexible program is also ideal for transfer students and students returning to college who have completed coursework in the past, but whose credits might not be applicable to traditional bachelor or associate degrees.
