Interdisciplinary Studies B.A.
Eight-Semester Degree Plan

Students wishing to follow the eight-semester degree plan should see the Academic Regulations chapter for university requirements. University Core requirements may vary by individual, based on placement and previous credit granted. Once all University Core requirements are met, students may substitute a 3-hour (or more) general elective in place of a core area.

Students in the Interdisciplinary Studies Program develop individualized course plans. These courses are referred to in the plan below as IDST Course Plan hours.
