Department Chairperson - Dr. Jessica Jost-Costanzo
Interdisciplinary Studies offers students the unique opportunity to concentrate in two specific areas of study while developing a broad liberal arts background through a program of carefully selected electives. Students will choose two minors with non-overlapping courses as their programs of emphasis, and will fulfill the requirements for those minors, with at least 18 credits between the two programs at the 300-400 level, and fulfilling all other bachelor degree requirements.
Students seeking a Bachelor of Arts degree must choose two minors from the following list:
American Sign Language, Art, Choral Performance, English, Expressive Arts Therapy, History, Political Science, Psychology, Religious Studies, or Theatre.
Otherwise, students will work toward a Bachelor of Science degree.
Upon completion of the program, each student will be able to:
- communicate information clearly and effectively both orally and in writing with integration of the two chosen minors;
- demonstrate an understanding of quantitative or qualitative scientific reasoning within the two chosen minors;
- demonstrate a base of content knowledge appropriate to the two areas of emphasis;
- show how moral and ethical perspectives influence research, theory, and/or applications in the two chosen minors; and
- meet the stated goals of the chosen minors.
For specific requirements, please consult the department chairperson.
