Why I Chose an INDS Degree – Student Testimonials


Cierra Carter
Journalism, Biblical Studies, and Global Studies

“My biggest issue when deciding on a major has always been that I know what I don’t want to do, but there’s still so much more than I’m interested in. The ability to combine my passions was a great opportunity. I think the Interdisciplinary Studies degree makes me marketable because it shows that I have diverse interests.”


Janalyn Miklas
TESL and Global Studies

“The Interdisciplinary Studies program helped me to fulfill my goal of doing collegiate level research and presenting at BigSURS by showing me how seemingly unrelated subjects can be used together to create a holistic approach to my future career…Because of the INDS program, I better understand how my areas of study work together to create unique and more thought-provoking research.”


Caleb Lenehan
Theatre Arts and Cinematic Arts

“My Interdisciplinary Studies degree makes me more marketable to employers because they see the courses I’ve taken through the Interdisciplinary Studies program and notice that I have challenged myself tremendously. In the end, it has helped me stand out among other students in broad majors.”
