Online Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies
The Online Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies offers students a unique opportunity to enhance their education, prepare to serve Christ in their unique roles in His kingdom, and individually format their curriculum.
The online Interdisciplinary Studies is a bachelor's degree that permits less specialization than is required for other majors. Students fulfill their interdisciplinary major with 42 hours of course work from 2-4 areas concentrations, rather than a single subject major. At least 9 hours must be taken in each area. The course of study culminates in a capstone experience under the supervision of the dean.
Through career-specific advising, students earning an interdisciplinary degree will benefit from:
- A customized general studies degree program that will include beneficial courses added to the student's course of study.
- Students will complete a final paper/project that ties all of their coursework and assists in preparation for their careers.
- Selection of coursework that is relevant to their current or desired career path.
Students desiring an online interdisciplinary studies degree will be required to complete 124 hours for the degree. Students must fulfill their interdisciplinary major with 42 hours of course work from 2-4 areas. At least 9 hours must be taken in each area. Upon declaring as an Interdisciplinary Studies major, the student will work with the Dean and Student Services to identify appropriate courses to complete the degree program. The student and dean must develop and sign a contract for completion and any deviation would need to be approved by the Dean.
