Why Multidisciplinary Studies?

Build your own major! In the Multidisciplinary studies program, you'll be given the flexibility to devise your own course of study by selecting classes from two or three disciplines. For example, you could create a major in neurobiology (by concentrating in biology and psychology) or Renaissance Studies (by taking courses in history, literature, and art). You'll gain a diverse array of transferrable skills that you can apply to a variety of fields and careers, while studying subjects that fascinate you.

AREAS OF STUDY:
  • MTD majors work with advisors to build their own curriculum from two or three departments or areas, distributed as follows: 15 credits in department or area A; 15 credits in department or area B; 15 credits in department or area C (or 15 credits in additional courses from department or area A, B, or both).
