Interdisciplinary or General Studies
The Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) and General Studies majors allows students to design their programs relative to an educational objective which cannot be achieved within one of the existing formal degree programs.
The specific degree plan must have the signed approval of the faculty advisor who assists with its design and will direct the study, the division chairs in the principal disciplines involved in the study, and the Dean of the University, as well as the student. The signed degree plan with a complete description of the IDS Major should be developed by the end of the junior year and must be filed no later that the registration next following the student's completion of 90 semester hours of study (the beginning of the senior year). The IDS Major will consist of 45 semester hours or more with at least 15 semester hours at the 300 level and include some capstone experience. IDS majors must complete all other requirements for the degree sought.
Please see the specific location page for degree offerings at that location.
