The Department of Interdisciplinary Studies offers unique programs that allow students to construct a curriculum using their prior knowledge to propel them to reach their personal, professional and educational goals. Our multifaceted department has multiple degrees that can be completed traditionally or as distance learning to adequately prepare students from diverse populations and geographical areas to compete in a rapidly changing workforce. As we prepare students for their career goals, we seek to provide a curriculum that cultivates and sustains a viable relationship between the academy and the community.
