The interdisciplinary minor provides educational opportunities not otherwise available and allows students the flexibility to select courses for the minor from several departments/schools/colleges at the university. Students must propose their interdisciplinary minor of 15-18 hours for approval by the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies Advisory Council. A proposal must identify the way in which the minor fits into the context of the student's entire degree program. To gain approval, students must articulate a reasonable and educationally justifiable course of study and must keep in mind that this course of study may not duplicate what is currently available. Students can choose to pursue either a college-planned or a student-planned interdisciplinary minor.
The following requirements apply to the interdisciplinary minor:
Students should contact the Office of Academic Assistance at 404/413-5000 for information on the application procedure.
