Interdisciplinary Studies


120 to Degree
$319 Per Credit

The self-designed major gives you the flexibility of designing your own major to align with your unique interests and career goals. It is the oldest and most-established self-designed major program in the University of Wisconsin System and one of the largest majors by enrollment at UW-Superior.

Working closely with an advisor, you can choose classes from a variety of subjects to create a custom course of study. The self-designed major is an optimal choice if you are seeking a degree or career preparation not offered at UWS or perhaps not anywhere. It can also be a great choice if you are a transfer student or have some college experience and are looking for the most efficient way to complete your degree. Choose from the following options-
Interdisciplinary – Comprehensive (no minor required). Minimum 51 credits, 22 of which must be upper division and must be interdisciplinary with at least three, but no more than four separate discipline areas.
Individually-Designed – Non-comprehensive (minor required). Minimum 33 credits, 18 of which must be upper division. May be either interdisciplinary or only one discipline.

Program Description

Course requirements include credits from the following areas: humanities, social sciences, natural and physical science, fine and applied arts, diversity, and global awareness
