Interdisciplinary Studies

Program Purpose:

Interdisciplinary Studies degrees are designed to serve active duty military personnel and goal directed students whose educational needs are not met by one of the University's structured majors.  A degree plan, consistent with the individual's stated goals, is designed for each student admitted to the program.  This degree may or may not prepare a graduate for a particular occupation or entry into a graduate or professional school. 

Program Admission:

Prospective students are required to submit an APPLICATION consisting of a title page, a list of all courses/credits previously earned that the student proposed 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.

Once applicants have completed the application package, submit all documents to the Interdisciplinary Studies Advisor. Materials can be submitted in-person at the Academic Advising Center.

Last, after you have been notified of admission to the IDS program, schedule an appointment to have your degree plan created.
