The Interdisciplinary Major is designed for students who wish to
complete a major concentration area in a subject not covered by any one
department or program. The interdisciplinary major crafts one area of
concentration between two departments, with approximately half of the
credit courseload taken in each department.
Interested students should consult with an advisor in the Interdisciplinary
Studies office to receive further information and to obtain the
appropriate form, which they must then take to the departments.
Departmental advisors must approve the proposed major and will discuss with the
student what courses will be required. The proposed concentration must
have a distinct and coherent interdisciplinary theme and the
coursework, selected by the departments, should provide substantial
expertise in that theme.
