In order to be admitted to the Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies degree completion program, a minimum of 54 transferable units is required.
Generally, students complete the program in three to four semesters depending on how many transfer units the student enters the program with.
Students entering the program with fewer than 80 transfer units and/or with unmet general education requirements will need to take elective and/or general education courses to complete their degree. Students can opt to take their elective courses either in the School of Undergraduate Studies or in select graduate courses offered to undergraduate students.
Students attend a two-day, in-person intensive to begin each semester. Following the intensive, all learning is done online via the University’s learning management system. The 100% online classes allow students to continue the learning, collaboration, and discussions that they began at the intensives.
Course of Study
The 36-unit program uses a sequence of courses that build upon one another. The curriculum is composed of 36 units of required core coursework, and further work chosen from approved electives and School of Undergraduate Studies electives, including those that meet general education requirements.
