About the course
Choosing Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) means creating an individualized cross-disciplinary major that can be tailored to your individual career and educational goals.

The IDS major was designed for students who wish to create their own academic programs by choosing courses in more than one academic area. This major challenges students to think about problems and issues from the views of different academic areas. In addition, the Interdisciplinary Studies major permits students to take courses from several academic areas to prepare themselves for a job market that requires skills and knowledge from more than a single traditional academic discipline. For example, a student interested in a career in the health products business might create an interdisciplinary major with selected courses in marketing, psychology, and biology. Students interested in global studies, gender studies and other interdisciplinary areas should also choose IDS. In addition, Interdisciplinary Studies is often the major of choice for pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, pre-law and other pre-professional students. In each of these cases, students can tailor their studies to specific interests and professional school requirements.
