Interdisciplinary Studies at Augustana allows students to propose a set of courses that focus on a subject area which is of interest to the student but which includes courses from a variety of disciplines. For example, a Canadian studies program might combine courses in History, Political Studies, and Sociology. Other interdisciplinary areas might be development studies, environmental studies, studies in social and political thought, and women's studies.
The program allows students to design a concentration which is specifically focused on their particular interests and goals. It combines the breadth of a liberal arts and sciences program with the depth of a concentration in a well-defined area.
