Interdisciplinary studies-social sciences major is for students whose primary interest in the social sciences requires interdisciplinary programs and course selections which are not possible within single academic programs or established curricula. Program offers students an opportunity to devise an approved, coherent program of study with an academic advisor fulfilling academic or career goals and includes prerequisites consistent with the 300- to 400-level major coursework. Since the program is a student-designed, interdisciplinary major, course selections will vary. Students in the interdisciplinary studies major must take courses in at least three disciplines within the major.
Additional Degree Requirements
Students must earn a minimum grade of C- in each course in an approved interdisciplinary studies major plan and achieve a minimum 2.25 GPA in the major. Courses in a student’s minor or second major may not be included in the interdisciplinary studies major plan without advisor’s consent. Students will not be allowed to enroll in IDS 289 and IDS 489 concurrently.
