The major in Interdisciplinary Studies allows a student to construct one of two individualized programs of study that differ from the University's regular major programs. These options use existing University courses and lead to the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Each sequence addresses a different set of educational objectives.
Please note: The major in Interdisciplinary Studies does not prepare a student for a specific professional career or graduate field, nor does it satisfy the requirements for Teacher Certification. Because of its general nature, this program will probably require graduates to convince prospective employers or graduate schools that the students’ degree preparation will enable them to succeed in a particular job or educational endeavor.
Under the minor in Interdisciplinary Studies, a student may construct a program of study that differs from the University’s regular minor programs. The sequence requirements provide an interdisciplinary program that may be used to attain specific educational goals that cannot be accommodated by existing minors at Illinois State.
