Interdisciplinary Studies

Capable and self-motivated students wishing to explore major courses of study not offered by the College may petition for an Interdisciplinary Studies major. The major allows such students the freedom to design and develop a course of study which combines classes taken from several departments or areas. Each Interdisciplinary Studies major must have a coherent thematic principle governing the selection and sequencing of courses in the major and it must be consistent with the goals of a liberal arts education.

Students who would like to explore an Interdisciplinary Studies major are urged to consult with their faculty advisor or Dr. David Sutherland, Associate Provost for Academic Affairs.
