Interdisciplinary Studies

Interdisciplinary Studies offers a Bachelor of Arts (BAIS) and Bachelor of Science (BSIS) degree.  Each one allows students to create a unique Degree Plan reflecting the student's career plans and academic interest.  This Course of Study may include a wide range of courses from across the campus in two "Tracks".  Students may include a disciplinary minor as one Track, such as a minor in History, and a unique field that they create with the approval of the program, such as "Public History and Museum Studied," for their second Track.
