About the Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies

The Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies is offered through the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts. This degree takes a liberal arts approach in which students pick two subject concentration areas to combine with a set of core courses. This degree offers great flexibility and results in our graduates having diverse career paths. More than one-third of our students who chose to do the Applied Study option for IDS 401 were offered a job from that experience.
