Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies
What is Interdisciplinary Studies?
The Interdisciplinary Studies Degree allows students to customize a degree based on individual passions, learning experiences, interests, and talents through the integration of electives combined with the core studies required for a bachelor’s degree. It is the most diverse and flexible degree program offered and has one of the highest credit transferability rates.
According to the Best Value Schools, “Most college programs feature required courses that you must take, but you may find that those courses don’t relate to what you want to study or even what you want to do with your degree. An interdisciplinary studies major, sometimes called a general studies major at some schools, features a number of different courses that let you customize your degree and select what you want to study.”
According to LinkedIn, soft skills are those necessary for interpersonal relationships that allow us to “get things done” and are expected to remain in high demand. “Topping this year’s list are creativity, collaboration, persuasion, and emotional intelligence—all skills that demonstrate how we work with others and bring new ideas to the table. Four of the five most in-demand soft skills remain in their top spots year over year, further reinforcing that these skills are evergreen—they’re likely to remain the top skills that companies want in star employees.”
