Interdisciplinary Studies Concentration

The Interdisciplinary Studies (IST) degree allows students to design an individualized, interdisciplinary program of study leading to a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree.  Each student collaborates with an IST Academic Advisor to design a focused program of study made up of related course work from at least three different academic disciplines.  A minimum of 48 hours in lower-division (100 to 200 level) and upper-division (300 to 400 level) course work is required with at least four courses (12 hours) in each discipline.
