PLEASE NOTE: The Interdisciplinary Studies, B.A. Ethnic and Intercultural Studies Concentration has been suspended. New students will not be admitted into the program.
The Fulton School of Liberal Arts offers a major in interdisciplinary studies leading to the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science. The major accommodates students who wish to develop programs of study in two or more disciplines or create a major in an area of study not offered by any traditional major at SU. This program allows students to create an individual and flexible major that is best suited to their interests or career goals. Most importantly, this program gives students the opportunity to integrate information across disciplines to help gain a more complete understanding of the chosen area of study.
Students majoring in interdisciplinary studies may choose a program in ethnic and intercultural studies. The Ethnic and Intercultural Studies Concentration is intended for any student interested in ethnic studies, area studies or comparative studies. The concentration options offer a variety of courses in three substantive areas: United States Minorities Option consists of courses that emphasize ethnic an minority relations in the United States only. The Cultural Area Studies Option contains courses that focus on a limited geographic area and its culture. The Intercultural and Comparative Culture Studies Option contains courses that are expressly either comparative and/or global in scope.

Students must complete 10 courses from the following with a minimum of eight courses at the 300/400 level with grades C or better in all courses.
