Program Summary


This degree program is offered on-line or on-campus. The program provides students a quality multi-disciplinary program of study that fulfills traditional university requirements and is designed to meet the student’s specific goal for a college degree. The degree is obtained through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' Office of Interdisciplinary Studies.

Working closely with an academic advisor, each student develops his/her program of study from four proficiency areas: communication, information literacy, problems solving/decision making, and community leadership. Students are encouraged to choose their own pace with the option of studying either full or part-time. New students are admitted to the program in the fall, spring, and summer semesters. Students entering the program should minimally have 60 hours completed at an accredited college or university, including the general education curriculum, and must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0.
