Interdisciplinary Major 
​​​
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
​​The Interdisciplinary Major is designed for students who wish to complete a major concentration area in a subject not covered by any single department or program. The interdisciplinary major crafts one area of concentration between two departments, with approximately half of the credit course load taken in each department.

 
Interested students should consult with an advisor in the Academic Advising Center 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, approved by the departments, should provide substantial expertise in that theme.
