WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

Degree Awarded: B.A. in Integrative Studies

Are you interested in real-world problems that go beyond the boundaries of traditional programs of study? Do you want to develop a set of professional skills and dispositions that demonstrate both a depth of knowledge and a breadth of understanding and application?

With the help of advisors, you will design your own course of study from across the curriculum and integrate what you learn in a capstone project to find coherence, meaning and value in your personal area of interest.
