Interdisciplinary studies is an option for students who wish to combine coursework from various disciplines into a single degree program if his or her specific goals and interests cannot be met through a school's existing majors, minors and electives. Students should work closely with a faculty advisor to strategically select coursework from designated areas of concentration that best suits their career path. Learning opportunities develop academic and professional knowledge and skills required for job acquisition or continued education.
