Admission, Application and Introduction Meetings for Interdisciplinary Studies

The Interdisciplinary Studies program allows Southern scholars to create their own major and pursue a program that's unique to them. We offer scholars interested in the program an opportunity to learn more about the Interdisciplinary Studies program as well as its requirements. Scholars interested in joining the Interdisciplinary Studies major are required to attend a one-on-one introduction meeting prior to joining the major and meeting with an IDS coordinator. In person and virtual appointment options are available for you to explore your unique options within the Interdisciplinary Studies program, as well learn about the outside-of-the-box nature of the program and how it can help you meet your academic, personal and/or professional goals.
