Interdisciplinary Studies (B.S.)

60 hours

This degree program is designed for the highly motivated student who is seeking insight in several areas of knowledge rather than a deep insight into only one. An interdisciplinary curriculum, including such areas as the social, religious, political, and scientific, will aid the student in understanding contemporary American culture and their place in it. The degree program also serves the student who wishes to craft a program of studies from existing courses and majors in order to lay a foundation for a specific career or professional goal not addressed by other OC majors. For example, a student interested in operating a music production studio may propose an academic plan combining courses from the business, communication, and music programs.

Students must complete a minimum of 122 hours including the major, core, and minor if required. Elective hours may be needed to reach 122 hours.
