Interdisciplinary Studies Degree
The Interdisciplinary Studies major allows students to essentially design their own curriculum within the University's guidelines. Interdisciplinary Studies majors will choose three major disciplines of study and must complete 12 credit hours in each area. At least one course in each disciplinary area of study must be 300 level or above. In addition, students are required to complete the Walsh University core curriculum requirements as well as a Library Research course and an Integrative project.
