Interdisciplinary Studies provides a broad, flexible, student-driven interdisciplinary liberal arts experience. The program will prepare you to apply multiple perspectives within complex settings by combining tools from various disciplines. You will gain appreciation for the many ways scholars employ modes of communication and analysis to explore phenomena.

For example, you might choose to combine science with governmental policy to examine practical ways to protect sensitive forests. Or, you might combine Art, Education, Recreation Management, and Psychology to craft ways to engage children in art therapy. The way in which you design your program will prepare you for your personal career goals as you see fit.
