About Our Program

The Multidisciplinary Studies (MDST) major bridges the liberal arts, sciences, humanities, and social sciences in ways that amplify diverse perspectives across the University’s established college and departmental structure. With careful guidance and academic advisement, faculty and students can tailor a concentration (an individualized course of study) unique to their areas of interest, inquiry, and innovation. Students can elect to pursue an approved faculty concentration or craft a unique proposal of their own, as they journey toward a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. 

Content integration, academic rigor, and learning across disciplines are key attributes of each concentration.  All MDST courses of study culminate with a faculty-directed capstone experience.  These internships, research projects, or hybrid experiences allow students to practically apply skills and knowledge gained in the major to the real world.
