Interdisciplinary Studies is generally a programme that will allow students to combine two or more separate disciplines into one degree. Doing this can mean that you gain a degree level knowledge about each of your chosen disciplines, and it can also mean that you are able to experience a more holistic curriculum. This combination can be an excellent way of preparing you for a specific career path, or mean that you are ready to study for a postgraduate degree.
Some universities offer an Interdisciplinary Studies degree as a general programme that covers predetermined disciplines, this is sometimes also called Liberal Arts or Joint/Combined Honours. Other universities offer an Interdisciplinary Studies degree in a specific set of disciplines, or allow students to pick from a set of disciplines to create their own degree. Some examples of Interdisciplinary Studies degrees are:
- Interdisciplinary Arts
- Interdisciplinary Problems & Methods
- Combined Honours in Social Sciences
- Natural Sciences
