Interdepartmental Major

Interdepartmental majors are available to students who wish to combine two disciplines or subjects into an interdepartmental concentration area. Such students are required to complete a minimum of 40 credit hours in the interdepartmental major. Students must also fulfill the following requirements:

  • The 40 credit hour concentration need not be equally divided between the two disciplines, but a program designed to give substantial knowledge should be planned in each discipline.
  • Each of the two areas should include a minimum of four 300- or 400-level courses for a minimum of 12 credit hours in each area.
  • Students must have two advisors, one from each department in which they propose to study.
  • The program of studies must be approved by both departments and by the college.
  • Students who are pursuing an Interdepartamental major may also pursue a minor. However, they cannot pursue a minor in either of the disciplines or subjects that combine to create their Interdepartamental Major. 

The following interdepartmental majors are available in the College of Arts and Sciences:

  • African American and African Diaspora Studies and Communication
  • African American and African Diaspora Studies and English
  • Computer Information Systems and Fine Arts - Graphic Design
