Interdisciplinary Studies

This program is for students who seek a bachelor’s degree customized to fit their personal interests. Students choose two concentration areas to provide disciplinary depth. Students can choose a concentration in any program Doane offers, such as Business Administration and Information Science & Technology or Journalism and Art. The interdisciplinary nature of the major makes it especially important that students work closely with their academic advisor in selecting concentration areas and courses to construct a coherent academic program.
