Inside Interdisciplinary Studies

Interdisciplinary studies degree programs, also known as multidisciplinary or general studies, incorporate multiple topics into a single curriculum. The skills obtained in such a program apply to almost any occupation. Many students are attracted to interdisciplinary studies programs due to their ability to customize their coursework.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) recommends students consider multidisciplinary courses, including government, philosophy and math, as preparation for law school (www.bls.gov). Additionally, course combinations that operations research analysts might find useful include political science, management and engineering. Many programs in sciences, social sciences and regional studies involve multiple disciplines, and students are often encouraged to sample several topics to gain a well-rounded education.
