The Interdisciplinary Studies program of study is composed of closely correlated coursework in two or more program majors. The program requires essentially the same Religion and General Education Cores as all other OCU degree programs. The unique feature of this option is the flexibility that allows the student to work with an advisor and several program faculty to build a customized interdisciplinary program that best suits his/her academic objectives and calling.
Upon completion of the Interdisciplinary Studies Program, the student will:
- Demonstrate competency in the knowledge and application of Biblical/theological issues and principles.
- Exhibit sufficient general education knowledge and skills to enhance intellectual understanding and effectively communicate in current society.
- Affirm a specific calling or career goal in a written Statement of Purpose (due prior to completion of a third semester of study), which clearly articulates a plan for correlated programs of study.
- Possess the ability to pursue further study or serve in a role in the church or society which draws upon the knowledge and skills of the correlated programs of study.
