Interdisciplinary Studies Major (UW-Superior)
The Interdisciplinary Studies Major is an interdisciplinary program for learners with goals that can be met through study in several academic areas. You'll work with faculty and your advisor to design the major around at least 3 areas of study that support your educational and professional goals. Students may also request that prior learning experiences be assessed for credit through the Prior Learning Assessment process. Credit for prior learning may be included in the Individually Designed Major.
A 120 credit degree program, available entirely via Distance Learning to provide the flexibility of study around your schedule without travel to campus, can be completed in one of two forms:
- A comprehensive major of 54 credits, with general education requirements and elective courses totaling 120 credits.
- A major of 33 credits in a major with a minor of 21-24 credits in a subject area, general education requirements and elective courses totaling 120 credits. This option meets needs of students who wish to include a minor in their program. You may also combine this option with a second major in a discipline such as Communicating Arts.
Total credits required for completion: 120
Distance Learning Center admission follows the same comprehensive process used for other UW-Superior admissions categories. You are required to have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 in previous college work. Students who have completed high school within the past five years must meet UW-Superior freshmen or transfer admission requirements, as appropriate.
