About the Interdisciplinary Studies Degree
Do you find it hard to nail down just one area of study in which are you interested? What if you could create your own course of study based on your interests and academic strengths? At Troy University, you can do just that through the University’s degree in interdisciplinary studies.
A diverse program tailored to YOU
The interdisciplinary studies program lets you build your degree program based on
your individual career goals and skill set. Within this program, you’ll complete your
general studies courses and select three academic minors that will hone your skills
across a broad spectrum of topics and specializations. This course load will be rounded
off with any unrestricted electives you choose to complete the minimum 120 hours course
requirement. Study with and learn from expert faculty from throughout the University
in the most in demand programs.
For example: Say you are interested in attending law school after you’ve completed your bachelor’s degree. You could choose to incorporate TROY’s minors in communication, legal studies and political science to prepare you for your next academic venture. Also, TROY’s interdisciplinary studies degree is excellent for those considering a graduate degree in a social science or humanities field.
Don’t let anything go to waste
TROY’s interdisciplinary studies degree removes the worry when transferring. Through
building your own program of study, you can choose academic minors that could allow
you to put your previously earned credits to use toward earning your degree.
While it offers opportunities to explore and learn skills within a variety of studies, it is important to realize TROY’s interdisciplinary studies program isn’t for everyone. Should you be interested in a pre-licensure/pre-certification program such as nursing, accounting, social work, etc., TROY has degree programs that will better prepare you for your future career. However, if you have interests and a willingness to develop career skills in communication, research and team-based solution strategies, this TROY bachelor’s degree program is a good fit for you.
