About this field

The degree, a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies, is comprised of two or three academic Areas of Emphasis (21 credit hours each or 15 credit hours each, respectively). You may choose from any discipline offered as a major or minor at VSU. Within each Area of Emphasis, you may use a maximum of one lower level course (1000-2000); the remaining courses must be upper level (3000-4000) and all must have a grade of "C" or better.
The Valdosta State Difference
Students choose Interdisciplinary Studies for a variety of reasons, but chief among those are the opportunities for diversity this program provides, as well as the ability to choose your own courses. The Interdisciplinary Studies program affords students the opportunity to craft a degree that is not only academically rigorous, but that is unique to you, the student - one which highlights your strengths and interests. No two degrees are identical.
The career field is wide open! Many times employers are not looking for a degree in a specific field; they are looking for certain skills that will be beneficial to them - skills such as professional communication, interpersonal skills, team work, leadership, time management, and professional reading and writing. You build and strengthen these skills during the pursuit of your degree.
