Designed to assist students who have already accomplished a substantial amount of college work, the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies degree provides the curricular freedom to tailor your degree to best meet your career and academic goals. Academic advisors work closely with students to develop areas of concentration in the humanities, fine arts, natural science, social science, business studies or allied health. As an interdisciplinary studies major, your capstone courses integrate your skills and academic area of concentration.
Interdisciplinary Studies graduates often continue on to graduate school to pursue a law, physical therapy, occupational therapy or other professional degree.
