Cameron University offers the Bachelor of Science and the Associate in Science with a major in Interdisciplinary Studies. These programs are designed to serve active duty military personnel and goal directed students whose educational needs are not met by one of the University's present majors.
Prospective students are required to submit an application consisting of a title page, a list of all courses/credits previously earned that the student proposes to be applied to the Interdisciplinary Studies degree, and a two-page rationale (essay). The rationale (essay) should contain a clear statement of the student's educational objectives, an explanation of how the selected concentrations are interdisciplinary in nature, what the student expects to be able to do as a result of his/her studies, and a statement explaining why the proposed program is worthy of a college degree.
1. Contact the Interdisciplinary Studies Advisor in the Academic Advising Center to make an appointment and create a plan of study. Plans must be approved by the academic department for each area of concentration and by the director.
2. Each person admitted to the program will be assigned an advisor and committee member (if needed) to (a) visit with the student to clarify goals and objectives and (b) develop a program of study.
3. Changes in the plan of study must be approved by the advisor and director.
4. Candidates for graduation must submit a copy of the approved plan of study to the Registrar two semesters prior to planned graduation date to check for compliance with graduation requirements.
