Interdisciplinary Studies Major & Minors

Design Your Own Major

Do you feel like no one major fits you? Are you having trouble deciding between two majors and a handful of minors? At Truman you can work closely with faculty mentors to design an Interdisciplinary Studies major, a unique individualized academic program that’s responsive to your personal interests and professional plans. Curious about what kinds of majors Truman students have designed? Explore the paths other students have pursued.

You can pursue a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. The best way to decide if designing your own major is the right choice for you is to enroll in Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies (IDSM 175) early in your Truman career.

Interdisciplinary Minors

Rapid changes in American and world cultures have created a growing demand for people who can apply their insights to a variety of intellectual and practical challenges. When you combine the context and knowledge from several disciplines, it helps you pursue practical problems more holistically. For example, an Environmental Studies Minor requires the insights of biology, business, health, agricultural science and other areas of study. Understanding Forensic Science requires knowledge of justice systems, chemistry and other disciplines. Diversify your professional potential by adding one of our interdisciplinary minors to any major.
