Program Learning Outcomes: Interdisciplinary Studies

Interdisciplinary Studies (minors) gives undergraduate students in select departments the opportunity to extend and complement their work in the major by pursuing a minor—a defined course sequence that explores a specific theme, topic, or discipline. Minors are optional, and most Interdisciplinary Studies students pursue only one minor, however, students may be approved to pursue two minors on a case-by-case basis.

Program Learning Outcomes

Students will:

  • Develop an awareness of interdisciplinary opportunities in professional art and design practices.
  • Increase their exposure to a broad range of skills, experiences, and knowledge.
  • Develop an art/design practice that is grounded in two or more disciplines, by pursuing a minor that complements studies in the major.


Assessment Measures

Student learning in the minor courses is assessed using level-appropriate rubrics and evaluations of presentations, papers, projects, reflections, exhibitions, and Capstone as well as Departmental Programmatic Assessment projects. Collectively these measures allow us to determine the level and quality of education attained by our students.
