Interdisciplinary Studies

Discover how to become a future leader and innovator through interdisciplinary studies.

Interdisciplinary programs draw from two or more academic disciplines that work together to create a powerful learning experience emphasizing integrative learning, critical thinking, essential questioning and creative problem solving.

Benefits of Interdisciplinary study:

  • Embrace new ideas that you couldn’t imagine while studying just one subject in isolation from others.
