Interdisciplinary Studies Program

Expand your possibilities beyond the limits of a single discipline. Develop your potential.

Our BA in Interdisciplinary Studies offers you the opportunity to integrate learning gained through different degree programs.

You can design your own degree. We offer concentrations in   sustainability studies, preparatory art therapy or a completely self-designed concentration. We provide you with a flexible structure and individual support to help you realize academic, personal and professional aspirations.

As an interdisciplinary studies student, you will begin with a mission statement that outlines your plan for study. You then develop a major project, such as a thesis, that encapsulates your unique concentration. Your adviser will work closely with you throughout the course of study, ensuring that the degree plan is well-connected to long-term goals.
