Interdisciplinary Studies | AUM

Interdisciplinary Studies

The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies is a distinctive degree plan designed to serve students with unique needs or academic interests. The flexibility of the program makes it ideal for students returning to the university to complete a degree or those who have completed significant credit hours at another institution, military service school, or in another degree plan. It is also a perfect fit for students who want to create an individually-tailored course of studies.

Distinct Tracks To Success

The Degree Completion Track provides a focused path to the completion of a bachelor’s degree. An ideal fit for students with more than 75 credit hours.

The Interdisciplinary Concentration allows students to develop both depth within a concentration and breadth across multiple disciplines. An ideal fit for students with fewer than 75 credit hours.
