The Multidisciplinary program provides a classical liberal arts education, covering a variety of academic areas. Students will choose from two programmatic block areas from the list to the right. In each block, students must take 18 credit hours, at least 12 hours of which must be upper-level, and of which at least 6 upper-level credit hours in each block must be taken from Concordia University Texas. Courses cannot double-count from one 18-hour block to another, or from the supporting course list. This major allows students to choose course combinations that suit their interests and needs.
In today's highly mobile and diverse society, career changes are commonplace; numerous studies have indicated that, after 10 years of work, perhaps as many as 80% of college graduates have jobs with little or no direct relationship to their undergraduate majors. Through the Multidisciplinary program, students have the freedom to direct their studies in any one of several directions, gaining the versatility and flexibility so important in a changing environment.
Additionally, a multidisciplinary major allows you to spread your wings: What better major for those who dream to study abroad.
A report by the Coordinating Board of the Texas College and University Systems indicates that, as training for many fields becomes highly specialized, employers have a need for "generalists" and are looking for well-rounded, flexible and creative graduates. Additionally, a Multidisciplinary major serves as excellent preparation for graduate study.
