Interdisciplinary Studies

Interdisciplinary minors seek to examine a specific area within a major from an interdisciplinary perspective. As such, they differ from an interdepartmental minor in that the emphasis is on students' synthesis of knowledge regarding their major discipline from multiple perspectives, rather than on mastery of multiple disciplines. Therefore, the interdisciplinary minor requires students to demonstrate interdisciplinary synthesis through individual study, research, and expression. It culminates in a public demonstration of a significant capstone project to the Marymount University community in the form of a performance, display, or presentation.
