Interdisciplinary Studies Major
Department Chair: Krista S. Mallo, Ph.D.
Interdisciplinary Studies Purpose:
The Interdisciplinary Studies Major is designed for students whose vocational objectives draw from multiple disciplines and who are seeking a well-rounded undergraduate education. It allows students the flexibility to design their own programs specific to their long-term goals. This major would be appropriate preparation for additional studies at the graduate level or for individuals anticipating attending seminary.
Students successfully completing this program will demonstrate:
- Advanced skills in written communication
- Advanced knowledge of the Western intellectual tradition
- Advanced ability to integrate their Christian faith with the content areas of two or more disciplines
Students select 30 credits from two or more disciplines (core courses) with at least 18 semester hours at the 3000 level or above. Students will also complete two semester long internships that are aligned with the selected disciplines within the major.
