Multidisciplinary

Follow your passions and design a totally unique degree. 

Develop a diverse skillset that prepares you for a career in an ever-changing environment with a multidisciplinary studies degree. Unlike most degrees, with a bachelor’s in multidisciplinary studies you’ll select two areas of interest from more than 30 available concentrations and craft your own personalized degree plan. This degree is perfect for you if you’re looking to pursue more than one passion, transferring a wide variety of credits, or seeking maximum flexibility in an undergraduate experience. For example, if you are a skilled musician who would like to learn how to run your own business, you may choose to major in music and business. 

Plus, the customizable multidisciplinary studies capstone course will prepare you for your unique postgraduate goals, whether you plan on attending graduate school or launching your career.

Carl C. Trovall, MDiv, PhD

The two questions I get asked most frequently as director of the Multidisciplinary Major are "What is a Multidisciplinary degree?" and "Why should I consider this major?" 

The Multidisciplinary major refers to the study of more than one academic discipline or profession, which can give you maximum flexibility to design a program that fits your unique personal and vocational goals. 

If you haven’t decided on a major, or you have broad interests and want to continue to be a lifelong learner, the Multidisciplinary Major is a strong option to consider. It gives you the freedom to explore a variety of subject areas and how they interconnect with each other, so you can choose the right major for you.
