Interdisciplinary Studies at Plymouth State University encourages pedagogical and curricular innovation in higher education. Students in our program are empowered to address complex issues as citizens of their community, nation, and planet. 


The Interdisciplinary Studies major at Plymouth State University provides a unique opportunity to construct a university major that meets students’ intellectual interests and career objectives. This interdisciplinary experience provides students with an alternative to the existing majors available at Plymouth. The Interdisciplinary Studies major provides flexibility by encouraging students to select courses from a variety of academic disciplines and lets students design their own education in consultation with a team of advisors.
