General Information

Interdisciplinary Studies awards both BA and BS degrees to UMBC undergraduates who have designed their own unique major.

Each of our students works with INDS staff and two hand-picked members drawn from the broader UMBC faculty to create this individualized education program. Common features are that each INDS degree combines courses from different disciplines, internships and independent research projects together with our own core curriculum.

If you think that this chance to create “a major as unique as you are” would provide you with a better college experience then why not come talk to us? You can also read more about the different aspects of this tailored degree process, together with some examples, under the tab “For Students.”
