The Interdisciplinary Studies Program at Concord University offers students the opportunity to design a course of study that meets a particular career or professional need not available in a single existing degree program. The BA/BS degree in Interdisciplinary Studies enables students to include as many as four different subject areas. This is not an appropriate degree option for the student who is undecided about a major. However, it is the ideal program choice for the student with a career plan that is multi-disciplinary and includes professional goals that are quite specific. Students will work with a faculty committee drawn from the desired subject areas to insure that the overall plan is coherent and that every class is appropriate.
