Choose Your Path

Areas of study currently available for acceleration in the interdisciplinary format are business management, communication, information systems, legal studies, and criminal justice.

  • Program Overview

    At Stevenson, you can create your own course of study.

    If you're seeking to start or expand your career, Stevenson's Interdisciplinary Studies program allows you to develop an individually designed major based on your personal academic interests.


    If you have academic interests not available through a current SU degree program, the Interdisciplinary Studies program could be just what you're looking for. You'll work with the program coordinator and faculty members from the two academic disciplines of your choosing to develop a robust course of study based on your interests. Areas of study currently available for acceleration in the interdisciplinary format are business management, communication, information systems, legal studies, and criminal justice. Each semester, you'll meet with the program coordinator to make sure you're on track as well as to review internships and other career-development activities. Most courses are offered either online in an eight-week format or in an eight-week hybrid format where students meet one night per week. Some courses are offered in a 16-week online format.

    The Interdisciplinary Studies degree program offers a great deal of flexibility for adult students, allowing you to:

    • Link previous college experience with special areas of expertise or interest that can be combined.
    • Create an individualized degree completion program to strengthen professional or personal skills.
    • Achieve a bachelor's degree for career advancement or personal satisfaction and to become an expert in a new area.
