The Associate of Applied Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (AIS) allows customization of the program of study based on each student’s academic and professional goals. The AIS requires completion of 61 semester credit hours (21 hours of general education requirements and 40 hours distributed among one or more areas of emphasis). Areas of concentration include allied health, trades and industrial and professional services.
The program curriculum may be strategically selected to build upon a student’s goals and objectives. Learning opportunities develop academic and professional knowledge and skills required for job acquisition or continued education. A student might choose an interdisciplinary studies program if his or her specific goals and interests cannot be met through a school’s existing majors, minors, and electives.
Students may enter the Interdisciplinary Studies degree program every semester. A full-time student can complete this program in 5 semesters. To graduate, students must earn a minimum of 61 semester credit hours.
Individuals wanting to enroll in the Interdisciplinary Studies degree program must be able to solve problems, work with people, multi-task, display a professional appearance, and work with computers. They should also have a strong work ethic, and be responsible, discreet and trustworthy.
