Interdisciplinary Study Option

The Interdisciplinary Study Option (ISO) permits undergraduate students with approved study plans to apply ISO credits earned outside their major department toward their major requirement by substituting those ISO credits for an equal number of credits normally earned in their home department. Between three and twelve ISO credits may be counted for major credit.

The purpose of the ISO is to permit students to augment their study in their major discipline in a meaningful way. This option is open to juniors in good standing with a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or higher. Applicants must submit a proposal in writing stating the reasons his/her major studies will be enhanced by study in another discipline. Application forms are available from the Registrar’s Office.
