Tailor Your Experience with a Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies
The Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (BAIS) emphasizes a broad learning experience and a wider perspective than that provided by traditional undergraduate majors. It is designed to offer the student the opportunity to participate in an interdisciplinary, coherent, academically sound, and goal-oriented education directly relevant to the student's intellectual development and career aspirations. It is appropriate for those students who seek a thorough grounding in the traditional arts and sciences from an interdisciplinary perspective. Each student in the Interdisciplinary Studies program becomes an active partner in the formulation of his or her program of study, working in consultation with an academic advisor to devise an appropriate individual degree plan. Within the framework of two foundation areas, a university-wide Interdisciplinary Studies sequence, and a multidisciplinary concentration, a student may draw upon the resources of all schools of the University to create a degree program
Interdisciplinary Major Discipline Options
Each student devises, in consultation with his/her advisor, the plan of study for each discipline and selects 12 semester credit hours of coursework related to the topic, drawn from at least two academic disciplines. In addition to the two areas of disciplines, the student may also wish to complete a concentration as a third area of discipline (see Interdisciplinary Major Concentration Options). If the student does not wish to complete a concentration, the student may work with their advisor to select electives from any area of study.
