Could it be that your own educational path has made you think about a more personal, autobiographical degree which is built on individual and academic interests investigated from a variety of disciplinary perspectives?
Typically, an interdepartmental major consists of ten core courses (40 credits) from at least two departments, and up to four supplementary courses. (These are courses which enhance the major, but are not directly related.)
The major is supervised by two faculty advisers, and is approved by the Committee on Individualized Interdepartmental Programs (CIIPC). Minors consist of six courses (24 credits) and are supervised by one faculty adviser.
Call (585) 276-5305 for an appointment with an adviser in the Multidisciplinary Studies Center (MSC).
Deadline to submit application materials: November 1 or April 1
***Second semester seniors are not eligible to submit interdepartmental proposals (this includes interdepartmental clusters).
