A degree in Interdisciplinary Studies offers an ideal means for learning to integrate and synthesize theories, methods, and perspectives from diverse disciplines. Not only is this a key skill set in our rapidly-changing world, but degrees of this nature also prepare students for an increasingly complex world where challenges have become the norm. This is truly a career preparation degree with more breadth than a standard, single-discipline-focused degree. To customize a degree to your interests, pick a topic from column A and another from column B, explain how those two seemingly different topics fit together and voilá — you have a degree that is as unique as you are.
This program has three mandatory foundation courses that are critical to the development of your problem-solving interdisciplinary thinking. Year one’s course exposes you to resources, skills and a plan to properly prepare for an optimum experience with degree style and for career preparedness. Year two’s course is a hands-on placement in the community that will combine with in-class work and objectives. Year three’s capstone course allows you to present solutions for an issue you’ve uncovered in your field of choice. These combined experiential learning components and Capstone Challenge will provide you with opportunities to strengthen the analytical, planning, problem-solving and communication skills that are in high demand across many career fields.
