Not sure if a traditional learning track is right for you? Look no further than a program that allows you to pick your own discipline, decide which classes you take and learn what you want. Interdisciplinary studies at UND is a one-of-a-kind program that gives you the freedom to study your interests and take advantage of faculty with expertise in a multitude of disciplines.
The interdisciplinary studies program is designed for students who wish to combine two or more existing majors/subject areas taught at UND. Although there are several pre-established interdisciplinary majors available, this program allows you to combine many different areas of study, for example:
- Environmental Studies
- Venture & Health
- Women & Writing
- Creative Writing and Space Studies
Students in the interdisciplinary program are able to choose from the best and most suitable topics offered in the hundreds of majors/fields of study at UND.
At UND, it’s not just what you do in the classroom that counts. By taking advantage of on-campus resources, you can enhance your understanding of course material while simultaneously gaining professional experience in your field. Our Career Services office can help you find an internship or co-op to enhance your knowledge and prepare you for the workforce. Take your pick of over 275 student organizations on campus to network, build your résumé and make new friends.
With a unique degree from a combination of fields, interdisciplinary studies helps you to build your education around your desired career goals, and prepare you for any career you want. Popular career choices for this major include business and teaching.
If you're interested in business, you could study international finance, psychology and management, for example. Studying business from a variety of academic angles may offer greater insight into areas like company growth management, employee relations and consumer trending.
Teachers of elementary and secondary schools, where only a bachelor's degree may be required, can utilize their interdisciplinary knowledge to teach multiple subjects. The ability to instruct several types of classes may prove to be a valuable asset to a school and may lead to rewards like higher salary or tenure.
