Office of Interdisciplinary Studies

The Department of Interdisciplinary Studies at Emporia State University offers two baccalaureate degrees granted by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences – the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BID) and the Bachelor of Science in Information Resource Studies (IRS).  The Department of Interdisciplinary Studies recognizes that, for many students, the acquisition of knowledge involves seeking information through various methods of study.  Both the BID and IRS programs incorporate courses from multiple areas of academic expertise.  Whether a student chooses to design a program of study along the lines of individual interest, or to develop expertise in six interrelated disciplines, the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies has a degree program that will help students achieve their educational goals.
