Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees, Majors, and Minors

The Interdisciplinary Studies Program at Concord University offers students the opportunity to design a course of study that meets a particular career or professional need not available in a single existing degree program. Scholars recognize that exciting career challenges cut across traditional specialties and demand expertise in more than one subject area.

The BA/BS degree in Interdisciplinary Studies enables students to include as many as four different subject areas. This is not an appropriate degree option for the student who is undecided about a major. However, it is the ideal program choice for the student with a Music career plan that is multi-disciplinary and includes professional goals that are quite specific.
