Welcome from the Program Coordinator

Dr. Joycelyn A. Finley-Hervey  ChairWelcome to the Program of Interdisciplinary Studies!  

Characterized by high levels of personal attention and commitment to your success, our program will provide you with the skill-sets which translate to on-the-job success. Interdisciplinary Studies is a custom program which builds skills in communication, cultural competency, analytical thinking, leadership, and teamwork.  

We value diversity among learners and emphasize the importance of you becoming an active leader, effective team member, and engaged global citizen. If you have a busy schedule and are looking for flexibility, our fully online courses allow you to balance your work and personal life demands.  

Since the average person changes jobs ten times in their career, taking courses from different areas of study will prepare you for a variety of professional positions and/or graduate programs of study.  Faculty and staff work closely with each student to design an individualized academic curriculum that exposes you to knowledge and internships to successfully compete in chosen professions.

The Interdisciplinary Studies Degree (BA or BS) is very fitting for individuals beginning their academic study later in life, who are completing a degree begun earlier, or just starting their degree.  It is right for individuals wanting a career change, pursuing a promotion, embarking on a first-time career, or preparing to enter graduate study.  Talk to us about maximizing your college credits and accelerating your graduation, while obtaining a quality education. 

On behalf of our entire staff and faculty, we look forward to assisting you as you embark on your educational and career journey.  Our goal is to ensure you have access to the most flexible learning environments and innovative experiences to meet and exceed your goals.

With highest regard,
Dr. Joycelyn A. Finley
