Interdisciplinary Studies (College of Arts and Sciences)


 

Overview

The College of Arts and Sciences offers two interdisciplinary studies degrees, the Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies (BAIS) and the Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (BSIS), for students who want to pursue interdisciplinary studies without a major in a single department or in one of the structured interdepartmental degree programs (African American studies, classics, European studies, film studies, Latin American studies, marine science, and women’s studies). The Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies and the Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies are not intended to be substitutes for approved major and minor programs. The degree programs are under the general supervision of the college Interdisciplinary Studies Committee, and individual programs are administered by special interdisciplinary program committees.

Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies programs in the College of Arts and Sciences must focus primarily on disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and fine arts. Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies programs in the College of Arts and Sciences must focus primarily on disciplines in the sciences, mathematics, and statistics; they may be particularly useful for students who plan to seek teacher certification in more than one science area.

A student who wishes to undertake a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies shall apply to the Assistant Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Undergraduate Academic Affairs and Advising, Flinn Hall.
