The Multidisciplinary Studies minor allows students to pursue a coherent, multidisciplinary course of study not duplicated by any existing ISU minor. It encourages students to engage in focused exploration of related disciplines in their areas of interest or in fields which complement their declared major. Students may design their own minor or, when available, select from multidisciplinary minors already developed by faculty.
Students submit a proposal to the intake adviser for Multidisciplinary Studies, which will be approved by a vote of the faculty in Multidisciplinary Studies. Once the proposal is approved, those courses constitute the approved list for the minor. Votes take place once per semester, in November for the fall and in March for the spring.
At least 9 of the 18 hours must come from the College of Arts and Sciences.
At least 12 of the 18 hours must be at the 300 level or above.
A maximum of 9 hours can come from any one discipline.
