Interdisciplinary Studies Program Description

The interdisciplinary studies program enables students to develop from two academic disciplines an integrated course of study not available through current degree programs. This is an individually designed major that allows students to work closely with faculty while pursuing academic interests that transcend traditional majors. Students consult the program coordinator and two faculty members with interests and expertise in the area of study.

Appropriate themes for interdisciplinary studies majors may include a set of problems, an idea, or a period study. Suggested themes include American studies, aesthetics and artistic expression, and international and global studies.

Courses are offered either in an 8-week online format or a 16-week online format.
