Interdisciplinary Studies

Customize your degree.

The Interdisciplinary Studies online program features an innovative curriculum for adults to integrate their varied interests and/or upper division credits from previous institutions into a unique self-designed major. If you are intellectually adventurous, independently minded, and eager to participate in an exciting new program, Interdisciplinary Studies may be for you.

You will work with an advisor to design a course of study involving three academic disciplines plus have the option of an internship or capstone project. This program gives you the opportunity to pursue topics of study tailored to meet your individual interests and needs. The degree type (Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science) will be determined by the majority of the three selected disciplines.
