- Integrate knowledge and personal abilities to attain a level of competence sufficient for productive citizenship and sustained learning.
- Understand and articulate the importance and influence of diversity within and among cultures and societies.
- Pursue graduate degrees or employment in a selected field.
- 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.
