Administered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Interdisciplinary Studies major offered by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign includes program concentrations in American Civilization, Jewish Studies, Medieval Civilization, and Renaissance Studies. Although it is not possible to offer concentrations in all specialties or topics of humanistic study, students whose interests do not coincide with one of the specific concentrations are encouraged to consider developing their own programs through the Individual Plans of Study (IPS) major.
Each concentration of the major in interdisciplinary studies is supervised by faculty members whose own scholarship and educational interests have involved them in interdisciplinary teaching and research. An advisor for students is available in each concentration and is responsible for approving students' plans of study.
