Interdisciplinary Degrees and Programs

Interdisciplinary programs offer you an opportunity to use the many resources available in the College by pursuing a degree that is administered jointly by various schools and departments within the university. You have the option of choosing an established undergraduate or graduate interdisciplinary degree or creating a self-designed program that fulfills your individual educational and professional requirements. Academic advisors and faculty members play an important role in advising you as you formulate and work toward completing an interdisciplinary course of study.

Self-Designed Interdisciplinary Degrees

BA or BS in Interdisciplinary Studies
Please see comprehensive "Individualized or Interdisciplinary Degrees" information from the AU Curriculum Proposals page. As a rule, final written application to the program and interviews should be made no later than the first semester of the junior year and no earlier than the second semester of the freshman year. Students must have at least a 2.50 grade point average (on a 4.00 scale) to be accepted. The student must secure the advice and approval of three faculty members—one major advisor who must be a full-time faculty member and two sponsors—who represent the various disciplines involved in the interdisciplinary field.
