Division of Cross-Disciplinary Studies
Welcome! The Division of Cross-Disciplinary Studies offers more than a typical degree-completion program or multidisciplinary degree; programs of study are framed within a liberal arts context. This combines lifelong learning and intellectual flexibility with professional preparation and career skills. Students have opportunities to apply what they’ve learned in an outside setting. The senior capstone project, which equips students with research and analytical skills, can be applied to an internship, service learning project, or independent study. More flexible and convenient than ever before, you have the option of traditional, off-campus, and online classes.
