BS and BLS in Interdisciplinary Studies

Students interested in the online Interdisciplinary Studies major should refer to the Undergraduate Degree Completion Program.

The on-campus interdisciplinary studies major provides an opportunity to pursue a course of study developed around a unifying theme, problem, or issue. Students must complete an application that will propose 10 upper-level courses selected from various Metropolitan College departments and programs that relate to their proposed topic. The application must include a statement of rationale for the topic and be sponsored by a member of the faculty. The application must then be reviewed and approved by the associate dean. The faculty sponsor and associate dean must also approve subsequent course substitutions.
