This is the first version of the 2024–25 General Catalog. Please check back regularly for changes. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

Undergraduate major: interdepartmental studies (BA)



The Interdepartmental Studies Program (ISP) gives students the opportunity to choose a preapproved plan of study in applied human services, business studies, or health science, or to design an individualized plan of study. Each track includes coursework from a variety of departments.

Students who plan to seek employment immediately after graduation should familiarize themselves with the educational background and qualifications required by employers and should include appropriate courses in their study programs.

Students preparing for advanced study should become familiar with the admissions requirements of graduate or professional schools that interest them. The earlier students decide to pursue graduate or professional study, the easier it is to complete the necessary prerequisites.

The Interdepartmental Studies Program is one of the academic units in the Division of Interdisciplinary Programs.
