Interdisciplinary Studies

Build your own major.

You have all the tools you need:  intellectual curiosity, imagination, energy and passion.  Using these building blocks, you can design a customized program of study that combines several of your academic and career interests.  Interdisciplinary Studies has one of the highest graduation rates of any major in the university, and nearly 100% of our recent alums are either pursuing graduate degrees or employed in their fields.  The program uniquely positions you for success in today’s knowledge economy, and we encourage you to come see what YOU can do with an Interdisciplinary Studies degree!

Past programs designed by students have included Expressive Arts (art and psychology), Dance Entrepreneurship (dance and business), Graphic Web Design (graphic arts and computer science), Women and Political Change (women’s studies and political science) and Pre-Med (biology, chemistry, and mathematics).

Plymouth State’s Interdisciplinary Studies program is one of fewer than 50 university programs nation-wide to be a supporting member of the Association for Interdisciplinary Studies.  We are proud of our reputation as one of the leading undergraduate interdisciplinary programs in the Northeast.  In 2015 and 2016, BestColleges.com named Plymouth State as one of the top universities in the country for Interdisciplinary Studies.

We look forward to working with you, and welcoming you to our group of motivated and creative scholars!
