Let's Get Innovative
In Interdisciplinary Studies, you’ll explore a central theme from the perspective of different disciplines—two or more and courses (45 credits) integrated into one learning experience.
Unlike other majors, interdisciplinary studies students do not take courses for the thematic study labeled with the name of the major area (Interdisciplinary Studies). However, you have the academic depth to take courses from several disciplines of study offered by the university. Your major, therefore, allows you to integrate knowledge and insight from different perspectives. You have the freedom to craft a higher education degree that truly fits your academic, personal, and career interests.
