About the Interdisciplinary Studies Option

The Interdisciplinary Studies Option is designed for students interested in a broad liberal arts education. Students take courses in the language arts, natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. As part of this option, students are required to complete a specialization track. General Education and Title V requirements are completed outside the major. However, Interdisciplinary Studies Option students may double-count six units between GE and the major.

The Interdisciplinary Studies Option leads to a variety of career options. Students may pursue graduate education in fields such as law, public administration, social services, the arts, and urban planning. Liberal Studies students are eligible for most jobs in which a college degree is required. Your Liberal Studies degree signifies to others that you are a capable well-rounded individual who can accomplish complex tasks and communicate well with others. The CSUN Career Center is available to explore your many career options.

Students interested in the Interdisciplinary Studies Option are encouraged to complete the Interdisciplinary Studies online workshop. Continuing students or students who have recently applied to CSUN will receive an individualized evaluation via email in 10-15 working days after completing the online workshop.
