Additional Information

Liberty University Online offers areas of study in Accounting, Business, Business Management Information Systems, Christian Counseling, Crisis Counseling, Criminal Justice, Education, Life Coaching, Paralegal Studies, Psychology, Religion, Social Sciences, Special Education, and others. An area of study represents a broad discipline of study at Liberty University.

The Interdisciplinary Studies degree program is individualized to provide flexibility and to give students options to select courses that will help them meet their academic goals. Students may take any course that fits within the discipline of study as indicated by approved prefixes on the areas of study listing, as long as the prerequisite requirements have been met.

This program is not available for students pursuing teacher licensure. This program does not comprise a double major.

Liberty’s Interdisciplinary Studies program requires 48 credit hours for the major which includes 45 credits in two or three areas of study. A minimum of 15 credit hours in each area of study is required.

Students must also take INDS 400 Knowledge Synthesis for Professional and Personal Development (3 c.h.), a 3-hour course designed to assess student mastery of content knowledge of the Interdisciplinary Studies program.

The Interdisciplinary Studies program gives you the opportunity to combine 2 or 3 unique areas of study to customize your major with multiple disciplines.

For each Area of Study, you can choose a general area of study or a specialized one.  General areas of study have a list of course codes you can choose any course from.  Specialized areas of study have specific classes you are required to take.

Please note: you may not apply more than 30 credits of one prefix to your areas of study.

  1. You may not apply more than 30 credits of one prefix to your areas of study.
  2. You may not select all of your areas of study from under the same general area of study. Thus, you may not select a general area of study and a specialized area of study that falls under that general area of study. Likewise, you may not select multiple specialized areas of study that fall under the same general area of study with no third area of study from a completely different general area of study.
