Disiplines

The Department of Interdisciplinary Studies offers a curriculum that allows students to attain personal/educational/ professional goals by integrating and synthesizing multiple disciplines.

To honor this intent and definition, curriculum choice will include no more than one discipline per department and at least two colleges/schools. In those cases wherein a student chooses two disciplines in one college, those disciplines must be distinct. For example, in the College of Education, students may choose an Education discipline and a Physical Education discipline. Prerequisite courses from outside of a department’s discipline that are within the same College may be counted as supporting courses, but may not be counted in that discipline.

An exception to the two college guideline is that students may choose three separate and varied disciplines within the College of Arts and Sciences. Under rare circumstances, other considerations may be offered but must be approved by the Chair of the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies and the Dean of the School of Continuing Education and Special Programs.

Note:  Disciplines are arranged by college and department.
