About the Multidisciplinary Studies Program
The Multidisciplinary Studies program allows students to create a customized degree (B.A.) or to choose a prescribed niche program (B.A. and B.S.).
For the B.A. degree, students may either build a customized program by choosing three focus areas from existing major or minor degrees and available certificate options, or propose a unique concentration area with the approval of the program director. Students also have the option to follow a prescribed list of courses to create a focused program. Current options include:
- Applied Data Science
- Film and Media Studies
- Hospitality and Events Management
- Spanish and Community Health
- Strategic Defense and Leadership
For the B.S. degree, students follow a prescribed list of courses across disciplines to create a focused program. Current options include:
- Artificial Intelligence
- Cyber Intelligence
- Data Science
- Healthcare Management
Both degree options are designed to allow for the combination of different fields into a structured format. Since the program involves coursework from departments across the university, it offers students opportunities to capitalize upon diverse personal interests and talents through a combination of study and academic experiences appropriate to meet their educational and long‐term career goals.
