About

When one discipline simply doesn't cover all you want to study, the Interdisciplinary Studies program of Emory University may be for you.

Overview

Run through the Institute for the Liberal Arts (ILA), the IDS major allows you to create your own program around a field that you define.

You’ll work with faculty advisors to help you structure your program and select courses from across departments. Build a solid foundation in writing and research, and your senior project will contribute to the broader public knowledge.

Recent students of the Interdisciplinary Studies program of Emory University have focused on the contemporary reception and valuation of science among native American peoples, socioeconomic determinants of health in Georgia counties, and social entrepreneurship in Latin America, just to name a few.

Outcomes

Earning a degree in interdisciplinary studies allows you to customize your studies to specific career interests. Because innovation so frequently happens at the intersectionsof fields, those who can comfortably navigate and connect disparate knowledge (like math and dance or philosophy and chemistry) will have the advantage in workplace as well as thought leadership.

Recent Emory graduates work at the National Institutes of Health, Georgia Public Broadcasting, Humanity in Action, and Carat.
