Interdisciplinary Studies

Peter Ubertaccio, Program Coordinator

Interdisciplinary Studies is an individually designed major.

The Interdisciplinary Studies program is an alternative for students who seek to accomplish intellectual goals outside of a conventional major. The student must prepare a program proposal with substantial intellectual content. The program of study, to be formulated with faculty advisors one of whom will be designated as principal advisor, must reflect the objectives of a liberal arts education. The student must also confer with the Program Coordinator. Proposals to create a Interdisciplinary Studies major must be approved prior to a student’s enrollment in the final ten courses of their Stonehill degree (i.e., prior to the senior year). If a student is adding a Interdisciplinary Studies major as a second major, an exception may be allowed to this requirement that the proposal be approved before the senior year.

The program proposal includes a statement describing educational goals sought, and the sequence of courses that would enable the student to achieve these goals. The course content must be focused upon a specific theme, and must include a significant number of courses beyond the introductory level as well as a senior Capstone Experience.

Interdisciplinary Studies programs must be approved by the designated faculty advisors and the Program Coordinator.
