The B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies program allows you to earn a degree while customizing your courses to fit your precise career goals. This degree allows you to negotiate your class load to fit SDSU’s general education requirements and your own unique disciplinary interests and professional objectives.
In addition to completing the core and graduation requirements, the Interdisciplinary Studies degree is 43 credits mapped out according to your own unique plan of study. For example, if you have an interest in owning your own business, you can pursue coursework in consumer affairs, entrepreneurial studies, finance, leadership and communications to prepare you for the challenges and responsibilities a business owner faces.
While designing your course load, you will have the support and guidance of an academic advisor. Your advisor will help to ensure your courses fit all requirements—like 33 or more upper level (300-400) credits from two or more discipline areas. Your advisor will also help you select elective courses relevant to your interests to make sure you meet the 120 credits required for graduation.

"For all the non-traditional students who have wanted to pursue and achieve that something for themselves, I can't imagine anything more rewarding. Don't listen to that discouraging devil on your shoulder - you CAN do this!"
