The Interdisciplinary Studies degree programs offer a broad, student-driven educational experience. The flexibility and individualized focus of these programs provide a wider perspective than more traditional undergraduate programs, preparing you for a career or further study. Above all, these programs serve students who seek a thorough grounding in the arts and sciences, media, culture, and business issues from an interdisciplinary perspective.

As an Interdisciplinary Studies student, you will be an active partner in forming your program of study. Together with an academic advisor, you will build an individualized degree plan that draws on resources across the eight schools of UT Dallas.
