Interdisciplinary Studies

Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) is a program that includes specific classes, certain majors, and a degree program. IDS allows students to declare a major as soon as they commence study at Mississippi College, even though they may be uncertain of their final area of concentration.  Students who declare an Interdisciplinary Studies major are assigned an IDS advisor and continue on a directed pathway to fulfill the requirements for graduation from the institution. 


Certain courses are listed as IDS because of their interdisciplinary nature. An example is IDS 111 Studies Skills.


Some majors, such as IDS Undecided and IDS pre-nursing exist under the IDS umbrella while students are taking college core.


At the advice of a major department and with agreement from the Director of Student Success, a student may choose the IDS degree program.  The details are given below, following the University Core.
