Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies


 

The Interdisciplinary Studies major at Nyack College is a liberal arts oriented, nontraditional program designed for students who wish to integrate two academic disciplines. It is especially for those students who have clearly articulated personal, graduate school, or career goals that cannot be fully met by existing major programs.

Why Pursue Interdisciplinary Studies at Nyack?

If you are an independent, inquisitive, and open-minded critical thinker who is interested in exploring questions that cannot be answered within a single discipline, then you should consider the Interdisciplinary Studies major.

What Will I Study?

Nyack’s Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies integrates one discipline from the arts and sciences with a professionally oriented discipline. Students may choose a discipline in the left column to combine with one of the respective partner concentrations in the right column. (Please note: The education degrees do not lead to teacher licensure. However, graduates may pursue alternative routes to certification in teaching. Please contact the School of Education for more information.)
