Interdepartmental Programs

Interdepartmental Programs

Interdepartmental degrees offered through the International Institute allow students to focus on a particular area of study -- either a specific geographic area, or a global comparative and issue-oriented approach -- through a variety of disciplines. The flexibility and individualized nature of these interdisciplinary programs enables our students to design a course of study that meets their specific needs.

Further information about the International Institute undergraduate and graduate Interdepartmental Programs can be obtained by visiting the IDPs website.
