Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies

A bachelor of science in interdisciplinary studies allows you to choose three areas of study and combine them into one degree to ensure you’ve got all the skills you need to pursue the career of your dreams.

Choose three areas of emphasis, making one of them psychological science. You will need to schedule meetings with each emphasis area’s department.
