Interdisciplinary Studies


PROGRAM PURPOSE

Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) degrees are designed to serve students who wish to combine two or more areas of study into a single degree plan in order to best reach their academic and career goals. In IDS, you will work with an advisor to design an individualized degree plan tailored to your educational needs. Cameron University offers many IDS concentrations that are available online – so depending upon the concentrations you elect, you may be able to complete your degree program entirely online. If you elect concentrations that are not available in the online format, you may complete the degree in the traditional face-to-face format, or in a combination of online and traditional courses, depending upon the courses you choose. Your advisor will assist you in making those decisions.

DECLARING AN IDS MAJOR

If you are thinking about declaring a major in Interdisciplinary Studies, your first step is to contact the Academic Advising Center at advisingcenter@cameron.edu for an intake appointment to help determine whether an IDS degree is right for your academic and career goals. An academic advisor will review your transcripts and offer assistance with choosing program concentrations and developing a degree plan that will meet the requirements for graduation. Once your degree plan has been developed and approved, it will be loaded into DegreeWorks and will become your map to graduation!
