Department of Interdisciplinary Studies

Department of Interdisciplinary Studies

Different concepts from different perspectives can lead to a powerful understanding of the world around us.

What happens when faculty members from seven different graduate programs share resources and best practices, provide their unique viewpoints, and collaborate on program curriculums? Graduate students earn more than a degree or certification. Using the Ignatian values as a guide, the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies strives to develop each student as a whole person, knowing that who they become is just as important as the degree or certification they earn.

Our faculty within the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies come from backgrounds in business, health, education, law, and the arts and sciences. Together, their experiences and expertise provide graduate students with a robust interdisciplinary education. You’ll also learn alongside other students with backgrounds from various career fields and walks of life.
