Transform Your Experience Into Opportunity.
The Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies is an individually designed major containing a Primary and Secondary area of focus. Under the guidance of an academic advisor, you design an individualized degree specific to your own needs and desires. This degree may provide a quicker option if you have previous college credits that may not apply to other degree programs. Obtaining an Interdisciplinary Studies degree allows you to obtain a broader undergraduate degree, often acting as a stepping stone to a Master’s program. Better transfer and greater flexibility while still covered by the highest accreditation possible—a combination that is hard to beat.
