Interdisciplinary Studies Majors

The interdisciplinary studies major consists of a minimum of 48 semester hours with either a 24/12/12-hour option from three fields or a 24/24-hour option from two fields. A field must consist of approved courses from any traditional undergraduate major, minor, or concentration currently offered according to the undergraduate catalog. Of these hours, 30 must be upper division. The 24/12/12 and the 24/24 options are permitted at the discretion of each department. The designation of the degree (BA or BS) for the 24/12/12 option is determined by the subject of the 24-credit concentration. The designation of the degree (BA or BS) for the 24/24 option is determined by the subject of both 24-hour concentrations. If the degrees for the two subjects differ, the student may elect BA or BS. The student must complete a contract form prepared in consultation with his or her advisor, the registrar, and the department chairperson of each concentration.

A student pursuing an interdisciplinary studies major as a second degree or second major may not choose as a subject area a discipline that is the student's first major or minor.
