The program provides three tracks of study which enables you to refine your degree path further:
Independence - The Interdisciplinary Studies degree will provide you the freedom to design a program of study that combines two or more thematic or disciplinary areas which will reflect your academic aspiration. If you want to pursue a rigorous course of research and drive your intellectual development, you will thrive in this program.
Inquiry - You’re curious, and curiosity drives inquiry - to ponder things as they are and as they might be. Rather than just see one side of the equation through data, you will also learn to understand the significance of those facts in the context of a bigger picture. Cultivating an attitude of inquiry is crucial to the Interdisciplinary Studies major.
Innovation - The result of independence and inquiry is often innovation—the act of making something new. You will be encouraged to push yourself toward creative ways of thinking and expressing your thoughts that will benefit your college and career path.
Integration - You’ll develop the skillset to investigate how various aspects of knowledge from across disciplines relate. Whether from the arts, social sciences, humanities, or natural sciences, the interrelation of facets of learning is an essential aspect of your degree.
