Customize your undergraduate degree with Interdisciplinary Studies!

Many undergraduate students change their majors. Some do it more than once! The Interdisciplinary Studies major takes the worry out of finding just that one degree by providing a flexible degree program from the start.

Interdisciplinary Studies is a personalized program with flexible course and delivery options (on campus, online, or blended) that lets you design your own degree. Based on your customized course choices, you will learn how to articulate your unique value to potential employers and graduate schools.

In addition to taking courses within Interdisciplinary Studies itself, you will identify and complete three “concentrations” in disciplines of your choice. You can select these concentrations from virtually any of the undergraduate programs that Lindenwood offers. This highly flexible structure will allow you to pursue your interests and craft a highly unique educational profile to take with you into interviews, workplaces, and throughout your whole career. You will be prepared to make a valuable and diversified contribution to society regardless of your career path.  

The department offers the following major degree program, which can be completed either in the traditional, in-person format or online:
