The Interdisciplinary Studies (Discover Degree) offers students the opportunity to pursue their academic and professional interests by combining three areas of concentration from the liberal arts and/or professional disciplines.  Discover Degree templates provide possible combinations of courses for degree programs that can apply to unique career goals.  This multifaceted approach, which embraces the spirit of a Liberal Arts education, allows students to choose the best combination in order to meet the demands of a changing, contemporary job market.  Built on a progressive core curriculum, the Discover Degree also allows students to propose their own program of study.  Through interrelated coursework, undergraduate research, and other curricular opportunities, students develop critical thinking, investigative, communicative, and analytical skills that will benefit them in life and in their future careers.
