Helping students design a program as unique as their interests.
Interdisciplinary studies is the only major that allows a student to structure their own program of study by selecting thematically related courses from three or more departments across the university.
This unique degree is tailored to each student and the academic areas of their choosing. Interdisciplinary studies majors tend to have a wide range of interests that cannot be fully captured by a single existing academic program. Students pursuing this major often have a specific career or graduate program in mind, and this major allows one to formulate an appropriate degree path.
Because the Interdisciplinary Studies major demands independence and creativity, these students are attractive to employers in business, non-profit organizations, and many other careers where flexibility and problem-solving are required.
Students preparing for professional or graduate school should work carefully with their academic advisors to ensure that all admissions requirements are met. IDS majors often stand out in admissions competitions as individuals with unusual and interesting backgrounds.
