Interdisciplinary Studies

Bachelor of 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.

There are two distinct tracks to success:

  • An individually-tailored plan of study aligning student interests with their future pursuits.
  • One of several multidisciplinary concentrations listed below.

Choose one from these Interdisciplinary concentrations:

Health Studies

Courses in nursing, anthropology, biology, kinesiology, philosophy, psychology, and sociology.

Leadership and Professional Studies

Courses in military science, organizational leadership, and up to 30 credit hours from the College of Business.
