The B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies is designed to allow students whose academic interests do not fit an existing major to devise, in consultation with an advisor and the vice president of Extended Studies-Academics, a major that encompasses two or more disciplines. The student must demonstrate the proposed program has sufficient internal coherence to warrant the term “major.” Upon successful completion of the degree program, students will have a well built foundation not only in general education, but also in at least two areas of concentrated study.
