An interdisciplinary program of study can be arranged to satisfy an educational objective of an individual student. Such programs may involve either two or three departments. Normally a student must declare an interdisciplinary studies major before completing 60 credits (or before the completion of the first semester for students transferring in 60 or more credits). Exceptions may be approved in extraordinary circumstances. In any case, the student must complete 30 credits after officially declaring an interdisciplinary studies major.
Application forms, available in the Department of Academic Enrichment and Learning, require a student’s statement of the goals of the program and how it addresses the student’s professional aspirations, a list of courses to be taken from each department, and dated signatures of the student, adviser of each cooperating department, chair of each cooperating department, chair of the Department of Academic Enrichment and Learning, and dean of each cooperating college. The completed form will be filed in the Student Enrollment Center and copied to the student and each adviser.
A minimum of 21 credits (at least nine at the 300 level or above) from each department - approved by student, department advisers, department chairs, deans, and chair of DAEL.
A minimum of 15 credits (at least six at the 300 level or above) from each of two departments and a minimum of 12 credits (at least three at the 300 level or above) from the third department - approved by student, department advisers, department chairs, deans, and chair of DAEL.
