Create your own Major Based on your Academic Interests


Through the Interdisciplinary Studies program, you can develop an individually designed major not available through current degree programs—all based on your personal academic interests.

The Interdisciplinary Studies program allows you to pursue academic interests that transcend traditional majors at Stevenson – or elsewhere. You’ll consult with the program coordinator and faculty members from two academic disciplines of your choosing to develop a robust course of study based on your interests. For example, your focus may be on a set of problems, an idea, or a period study. Other themes include American studies, aesthetics and artistic expression, and international and global studies. 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.

Want to go the extra mile? Our Bachelor’s to Master’s Option allows you to graduate with a master’s in as little as five years.

Graduates of the Interdisciplinary Studies program will:

  • Demonstrate general knowledge in the liberal arts.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of content in two academic disciplines.
  • Demonstrate effective communication by engaging in inquiry and reflection on a topic of personal interest.
