Interdisciplinary Programs

Interdisciplinary Studies

Interdisciplinary Studies (INDS) is a program available to UAF students at the undergraduate level: within the Associate of Applied Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Technology degree options, and at the graduate level: Master's and Doctoral programs. The interdisciplinary program provides flexibility to students with well-defined goals who do not fit into one of the established majors offered by the university.

Information is available for the undergraduate INDS program section. For advising and additional information on undergraduate and Master's, contact:

Graduate Interdisciplinary Studies

Interdisciplinary Degrees (M.A., M.S. or Ph.D.) Students who are interested in creating their own Master’s or Doctorate degree program by combining course work in more than one discipline have the responsibility to design the program, organize a committee of faculty members to serve as advisors and make sure that it conforms to rigorous academic standards.

The proposed program must differ significantly from and may not substitute for an existing UAF graduate degree program. The student may select no more that one half of his/her program credits from one existing graduate degree program.

Procedures for developing an Interdisciplinary Studies Degree are listed here.
