Are you looking for a personalized major program that will let you combine several academic fields into a coherent program of study? Then Fisher's program in Interdisciplinary Studies is right for you.
The program is designed to serve:
- Mature adults who no longer want or need a traditional major (including those who have accumulated college credits in several fields but whose needs and goals have changed).
- Men and women, with or without prior college credit, at the midpoint of their careers who want and must have a baccalaureate degree but not necessarily a major in a traditional academic discipline.
- Students who have completed an associate's degree and want to explore their interests in an individually tailored program.
- The traditional college-age student who either has a specific interdisciplinary plan in mind for graduate studies or who seeks a general liberal studies education for its own sake.
In consultation with two full-time faculty from different departments, you'll outline your goals, objectives and methods of evaluation for your unique program of study.
The Interdisciplinary Studies program leads to a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts degree. A minor in Interdisciplinary Studies is also available with permission of your advisor and the Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences.
