Overview

What is Interdisciplinary Studies at WVU like?

Description

The Multidisciplinary Studies (MDS) Program is comprised of three related minors. The program does not limit students to courses of study in a particular area, but rather stresses the importance of breadth of knowledge and cross-disciplinary communication. The program emphasizes flexibility and combines specialized knowledge from individual disciplines with a unique ability to approach problems from divergent perspectives.

Students learn to apply their minors to real-world problems through a community-based internship and to apply multidisciplinary techniques in communicating the strengths of their self-chosen course of study.

MDS students can take advantage of the vast resources available in the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences, but are not limited to any one of the University’s colleges when making decisions as to which minors to pursue. Thus, MDS students are uniquely positioned to take advantage of the excellence of WVU’s faculty across the entire spectrum of academic offerings.
