The Interdisciplinary Studies degree program (formerly B.A. in General Studies) at Eastern Illinois University has served adult learners, helping them meet their goal of earning a bachelor's degree. 


Technology has allowed us to expand beyond Eastern Illinois University, by offering this Interdisciplinary Studies adult focused degree-completion program completely online.
