Interdisciplinary Studies Degree Program

An Interdisciplinary Studies Degree Program lets you choose a major or concentration in more than one area.

The interdisciplinary studies program provides students with educational opportunities, experiences, and career direction to meet their professional and academic goals.  The purpose of this degree is to provide flexibility to students with broad interests and to offer an option to those with new interests or those changing their majors late in their academic careers. The Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies offers students the ability to design a unique degree plan while meeting their academic institution's requirements for graduation. This flexibility allows students to complete a degree that offers an element of individualism absent in many other degrees specific to a particular discipline. A bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies holds the same value as other degrees in liberal arts or sciences, which allows students to build strong arguments based on information from a broad range of topics. Students may select from concentrations in two-three areas of interest. An interdisciplinary degree is often highly desirable in a rapidly changing world and provides opportunities for multiple career paths. Currently, students may specialize in Business (covers a broad range of courses such as marketing, management, human resources, and more), Applied Psychology, and Criminal Justice. We will provide additional opportunites for specialization in the near future.
