Interdisciplinary Studies      


The Interdisciplinary Studies program prepares students for courses that bridge academic disciplines. Students engage in intellectually challenging courses from multiple disciplines. The interdisciplinary major is also considered a stand-alone major for students seeking a generalist degree.


Students who complete the interdisciplinary studies major will:

  1. Use multiple thinking strategies to examine real-world issues, explore creative avenues of expression, solve problems and make consequential decisions.
  2. Integrate knowledge and personal abilities to attain a level of competence sufficient for productive citizenship and sustained learning.
  3. Understand and articulate the importance and influence of diversity within and among cultures and societies.
  4. Pursue graduate degrees or employment in a selected field.
  5. Utilize their generalist degree to pursue graduate study in a variety of areas in the liberal arts and humanities.

A major in Interdisciplinary Studies requires 124 credit hours as indicated on the curriculum chart. Students seeking a generalist degree can major in Interdisciplinary Studies.
