Interdisciplinary Studies


About IDS

The undergraduate Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) program, also known as 3D, is designed to allow you to develop a plan of study with themes that suit your individual interests and needs. When a traditional degree path will not adequately prepare you for your academic and career goals, IDS offers a way of customizing a plan of study using combinations of three disciplines. Before you are accepted into the program, you must work with advising staff to identify your program requirements, drawing from at least three academic areas.

The undergraduate IDS program is housed in the College of Arts and Sciences, and is available to all students. Successful admittance and completion of the program will result in either a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies. This program is not meant to be a general undergraduate degree. Instead, your degree plan will be sharply focused and designed to meet a specific, clearly defined objective.
