Interdisciplinary Studies Major (BA/BS)

The Interdisciplinary Studies major grants undergraduate students the flexibility in crafting their own academic focus as they work towards degree completion. Students enjoy the option of choosing two core disciplines for their degree's concentrations. While the degree stresses critical thinking and writing skills like all DBU programs, the interdisciplinary major is designed for students seeking broader opportunities as they pursue God's calling.
