IDS Degree Program Major Requirements (54-63 Hours)


Students complete the program coursework in the Interdisciplinary Studies Degree by selecting, in consultation with their advisor, three defined minors from the Mississippi College undergraduate catalog.  Interdisciplinary Studies Degree students will identify one of the three minors as a “preferred” or “concentration” area.  Because different minors at the University require varying numbers of hours (usually between 18 and 21 hours), different combinations of programs may result in varying numbers of program hours.  Coordination by, and communication with, the Interdisciplinary Studies advisor is thus crucial in successfully completing this degree program.  To meet graduation requirements, students must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 in each of the minor areas, as well as an overall cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher.

CONCENTRATION AREA (18-21 HOURS)


Students choose one of the minors at the University as a preferred area of study.  See the various academic departmental information for available minors. 

SUPPLEMENTAL AREA (18-21 HOURS)


Students must choose a second minor program from the available minors at the University.  See the various academic departmental information for available minors. 

SUPPLEMENTAL AREA (18-21 HOURS)


Students must choose a third minor program from the available minors at the University.  See the various academic departmental information for available minors. 

General Electives


Sufficient elective hours must be taken to meet the minimum hour requirement for graduation in this program.  Electives should be chosen in consultation with the advisor.  Special attention should be paid to the requirement that “at least one-third of the academic work which a student takes in meeting requirements for graduation with a bachelor’d degree must be in junior-senior level courses (courses numbered 300-400).” Thus, in a 130-hour program, at least 39 hours must be taken at the 300- or 400-level.  See Academic Information, General Degree Requirements for Graduation section of the undergraduate catalog.

TOTAL: 130 SEM. HOURS
