In addition to meeting the University's liberal arts core requirements, you must complete approximately 36 semester hours of coursework in an individually tailored program that combines two or more academic concentrations.
If you are interested in pursuing an Interdisciplinary degree, you must consult with your advisor or an area chairperson in one of the proposed disciplines. Next, you must write a detailed proposal stating: (1) the career goals that you intend to achieve; (2) the specific learning and skill objectives needed to realize your career goals; (3) the proposed courses in two or more disciplines that are required to accomplish learning and skill objectives; and (4) the names of the faculty members who will assist in advising you in the proposed academic disciplines. The proposal should be signed by the advising faculty, the chairpersons of the areas involved and the Registrar.
A proposal for an Interdisciplinary major is then filed with the Registrar and becomes your intended course of study. It may be revised with the approval of the appropriate faculty members. Interdisciplinary proposals are normally filed during a student's junior year.
