Interdisciplinary Studies

Do you feel limited by the curriculum of a single major? Would you like to design your own curriculum to link together separate academic interests? If so, then the Interdisciplinary Studies (IS) major may be for you. For self-motivated students, who like the idea of tailoring their own degree, IS is a great solution.  

All students complete IS 499 Capstone in their senior year, which requires an original research project that results in an article-length essay, combining at least two of their discplines.

Students in the major combine academic work in two or three of the following disciplines:

Art (studio)

Art History

Biological Sciences

Business

Chemistry

Communication

Culinary Arts

English

Family Studies

Film Studies

French

Geography

Health & Kinesiology

History

Legal Studies

Mathematics

Music

Philosophy

Political Science

Psychology

Religious Studies

Spanish

Theatre

Women’s Studies
