The Interdisciplinary Concentration at Western Washington University provides an opportunity for developing an individually designed major for the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Arts in Education degrees. It allows maximal flexibility in formulating a program to meet personal and career goals, bringing together each student's vital interests from more than one discipline into a cohesive whole.

About

The Interdisciplinary Concentration at Western Washington University allows students to work with a faculty committee to articulate a sound rationale for their area of study and to develop a plan including courses, independent study projects, senior projects and, where applicable, internships and apprenticeships.

Students are assisted in completing the concentration by faculty and other advisors and by the Concentration Seminar course. At the conclusion of the program, a senior project and a concentration summary and evaluation help each graduate to evaluate her or his own work and to look toward the future.

Concentrations have been developed in a wide range of areas not available through traditional majors. Further information pertaining to the concentration, its possibilities and prospects, may be found in the Student Guide to Fairhaven College.
