Design a Program that Fits Your Career Goals with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies

Do you have unique professional goals in mind? Maybe you’re transferring, and you want to make sure your credits will be utilized. A Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies is an excellent way for you to personalize your degree to your unique needs.

Many students choose this path because the career they want to pursue requires a very specific set of skills. For instance, you may want to become a medical illustrator, so you’ll select fine arts and science as your areas of study. Or maybe you want to be a business translator, and you’ll choose to study a language and business. Whatever your unique calling is, an interdisciplinary studies degree gives you the flexibility you’ll need to study the right subjects.

  • Career planning
  • Professional development
  • Communication skills
  • Writing
