The Lane College Interdisciplinary AA program mission is to prepare students for employment in entry-level positions. It also provides students with credentials for acceptance to BA degree programs.

AA and AS in INT combine choices from two departments across divisions boundaries leading to an associate degree.

A MAJOR in Interdisciplinary Studies requires 61 CREDIT HOURS

This includes 34-39 credit hours of general education courses and 24-27 hours of individualized, area of interest courses. The student must earn a ā€œCā€ or better in each major course.
