The Individualized Study (INDS) program offers two different degree tracks, named Integrative Studies (INTS) and Multidisciplinary Studies (MDST). The shared goal of both tracks is to mutually benefit UMBC and its students. The key difference between INTS and MDST relates to the student to whom each track is targeted.
INTS is open to any student who is ready and willing to tackle the unusual challenges of self-aware, scholarly integration required to write a formal degree plan
MDST is for students who (i) have reached the end of their journey within a traditional major , as acknowledged in writing by that program’s appropriate representative OR (ii) left UMBC without having completed a bachelor’s degree.
Please note: UMBC is committed to creating an accessible and inclusive environment for all students, staff, and visitors. If you have difficulties accessing any of the materials on our site, please contact us so that we can provide an alternative format and remedy any accessibility challegnes
