What You’ll Learn

The actions of one person can have an amazing impact on society. However, today’s social issues are so complex, they require some pretty creative answers.

As an interdisciplinary studies major at JCSU, you won’t be confined to just one program of study. Our flexible program allows you to combine two or three majors to create a unique major that fits your career goals.

What will I study as an interdisciplinary studies major?

Your education as an interdisciplinary studies major begins by a problem or question that you want to answer. The disciplines that you combine for your degree in interdisciplinary studies will give you different points of view to analyze the problem and help you come up with an innovative solution.

Through close work with the advisors in your chosen programs, you’ll plan your academic goals around research topics that are interesting to you.

Where will I study interdisciplinary studies?

It all depends on what you want to learn. Our campus offers the latest technology in our smart classrooms, and we have a variety of high-tech labs to help you conduct cutting-edge research.

On- and off-campus, our facilities will provide the right environment for you to explore the variety of possibilities related to your focus of study.

What will I learn outside the interdisciplinary studies program?

JCSU is a private liberal arts university. What this means to you is that your education will broadly cover all areas of study. The diversity of your classes will help you look at “the big picture” in any career you choose.

  • Classes in computer science and communication arts will give you a definite advantage in the job market and workplace.
  • Taking several English and foreign language classes will help you interact with a global community that is getting smaller each day.
  • By taking math and science classes, you’ll have a better understanding of the world around you.
  • Health and physical education courses give you the knowledge to cope with everyday stress and lead a better, longer life.

Having a college education will give you the tools to succeed in life. Having a liberal arts education will give you the opportunity to take your success further.
