Interdisciplinary Studies

Overview

The Interdisciplinary Studies Program (INTS) provides the opportunity to create a truly customized degree plan while maintaining high academic standards. The Interdisciplinary Studies Program is intended to meet the needs of creative, intellectually curious, and academically motivated students.

Interdisciplinary Studies is organized in five distinct tracks, each designed to encourage broad intellectual inquiry and the synthesis of diverse areas of study. The first is intentionally open to student choice. The others correspond to the four major themes of the UT Arlington Strategic Plan: Bold Solutions, Global Impact:

  1. Health and the Human Condition
  2. Sustainable Urban Communities
  3. Data-Driven Discovery
  4. Global Environmental Impact

Students in the program are expected to work closely with their adviser to develop an innovative program of study that draws on the rich academic resources of the University, including existing minors and certificates. As members of the Honors College, INTS students are also encouraged to pursue opportunities in experiential learning, including undergraduate research, internships, service learning, and study abroad.

Application Procedure

Students interested in an Interdisciplinary Studies major must meet the eligibility requirements set by the Honors College. Prospective students are strongly encouraged to apply to the Honors College as soon as possible, and they should also meet early on with an academic adviser in the program to begin developing a tentative degree plan. To be formally admitted to the program, a student must earn a B or better in INTS 2301 and have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.35. All students admitted to INTS are required to become members of the Honors College, and as such will enjoy all benefits and be expected to meet all requirements of the College. Please contact INTS Academic Adviser Mrs. Rebekah Chojnacki for more information: rebekah.chojnacki@uta.edu.
