The Interdisciplinary Studies program from Cambridge College enables you to customize your own course of study in consultation with a faculty advisor. You will be expected to articulate a rationale for each course selected, and your faculty advisor will meet with you to assess your progress in meeting your program goals as part of a formative evaluation process. While the interdisciplinary studies degree will prepare you for a wide range of careers, please note that this program is not an option for attaining licensure.
