A Unique Degree
Students majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies work closely with an advisor to plan your own degree
Midway University’s Interdisciplinary Studies degree is a program that emphasizes the abilities most demanded in today’s workplace: oral and written communication, critical thinking, technology and information literacy, as well as global awareness.
The Interdisciplinary degree program is flexible and relevant. You will work closely with an advisor to plan your own courses of study, which can be broad or tightly focused on one or two disciplines.
No two student’s path are alike within the Interdisciplinary Studies program, it is truly a unique, self-designed program.
As an Interdisciplinary Studies student, you will also participate in research projects and/or internships to gain real-world experience and help you create a job-ready resume.
