General Information Under the Major in Interdisciplinary Studies, a student may construct one of three individualized programs of study that differ from the University’s regular major programs. These options use existing University courses and lead to the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Each sequence addresses a different set of educational objectives. I. The Individualized Sequence of the Major in Interdisciplinary Studies allows a student to design, with the help of a faculty sponsor, a specialized program of study that is not offered by the University. This program is intended for the student whose specific inter- ests cannot be accommodated within existing programs. Some topics recently chosen by stu- dents include Classical Civilization, Agricultural Communication, Three- Dimensional Design, Human Services and Needs, International Public Administration, and Theatre Management. The Individualized Sequence is often a second or auxiliary major but may be proposed as a primary major. II. The Multidisciplinary Studies Sequence of the Major in Interdisciplinary Studies is built around the offerings of two or more depart- ments or schools. It is intended for the student who is seeking a baccalaureate degree without the specialization of a traditional major. The student chooses the focus of the program, with the help of a faculty advisor, by determining the departments or schools in which he or she wishes to pursue advanced work. III. The Human and Educational Services Sequence recognizes work that students have completed in working toward a degree in Special Education (SED) or Curriculum and Instruction (C&I). Completion of this degree program does not allow for certification as a teacher. NOTES: 1. The Multidisciplinary Studies Sequence of the Major in Interdisciplinary Studies does not pre- pare a student for a specific professional career or graduate field. Because of its general nature, this program will probably require graduates to convince prospective employers or graduate schools that the students’ degree preparation will enable them to succeed in a particular job or educational endeavor.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
