Academic variety Interdisciplinary Studies offers a wide variety of coursework under many different disciplines. In this program, you build your major to fit your individual needs or desires, instead of meeting the more structured requirements of other majors. Interdisciplinary Studies is perfect for self-starters who are looking to create a college experience that is entirely their own.
One particular strength of Interdisciplinary Studies is that it can easily combine courses in the liberal arts with courses from professional programs.
To receive an Interdisciplinary Studies degree, you must complete:
- 52 credits of general education courses
- 18 credits from one academic discipline. (6 of these need to be 300-400 level)
- 12 credits from a second academic discipline
- 38 credits of free electives
- 120 Total credits
In line with PASSHE requirements, 42 of your 120 credits need to be upper division (typically 300-400 level) coursework.
