Interdisciplinary Studies

A Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies will allow you to customize a degree plan that fits your personal and career goals. Students engage with experienced faculty to develop a broad educational experience with coursework from a variety of academic disciplines.

Students receive individualized academic advising and a broad educational experience with coursework from a variety of academic disciplines. The program includes general education requirements and an area of concentration but not a specific major. The concentration area can be tailored to prepare students for entry into a particular career area. The degree provides maximum flexibility for students who have well-defined career objectives and wish to determine the content of their degree rather than pursue one of the established majors at OCU. The degree serves as a bridge to numerous higher degree programs and prepares students for employment in areas not requiring specific baccalaureate degrees. Students in this major are not eligible to graduate with a double major.

Ohio Christian University understands and supports your commitments to your family and career. Our program has been designed specifically for busy adults. You take one class at a time and the textbooks are mailed directly to your home. Achieve your potential and fulfill your dreams! What you know now has gotten you this far.
