The Division of Cross-Disciplinary Studies in the College of Graduate and Continuing Studies at East Tennessee State University offers a B.S. Interdisciplinary Studies degree program.
The program of study is framed within a liberal arts context. This combines lifelong learning and intellectual flexibility with professional preparation and career skills. Students have opportunities to apply what they've learned in an outside setting. All programs include a capstone or closing project that equips students with the skills necessary to apply what has been learned to an internship, service learning project, or independent study opportunity.
With Interdisciplinary Studies, students will receive:
- A flexible and customized program of study
- An interdisciplinary perspective
- The skills needed for a changing work environment
The B.S. Interdisciplinary Studies meets the needs of students whose academic interests are situated between two or more disciplines and gives students the opportunity to integrate personal and professional growth by means of the exploration of multiple subjects, perspectives, and methodologies in a variety of fields.
The Interdisciplinary Studies degree offers three paths: Integrative Studies, Professional Studies, and an Individualized Track. The degree can be completed on-ground, hybrid, or 100% online,* with part-time and full-time options available. Each track offers ample opportunity for students to tailor their studies to their specific needs and desired skillsets.
