Interdisciplinary Degree Programs

The Charles Center is charged with the responsibility of coordinating the Interdisciplinary Degree program at William & Mary. The curriculum of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences provides interdisciplinary majors that fall into two categories. Several interdisciplinary majors have received stand-alone authorization from the State. These include American Studies, Global Studies, International Relations, Public Policy, and Neuroscience. All other interdisciplinary degrees are awarded under a BA/BS in Interdisciplinary Studies (INTR). 

  1. Degrees awarded under the BA/BS in Interdisciplinary Studies (INTR)
               - Self-designed majors
               - Structured interdisciplinary majors
  2. Stand-alone interdisciplinary programs

All interdisciplinary programs must be compatible with the degree requirements for Arts and Sciences. Each major must fulfill the Major Writing Requirement. The Committee on Honors and Interdisciplinary Studies or the appropriate advisory committee must approve the designation of courses which fulfill the writing and computer proficiency requirements.

Students may also complete Interdisciplinary Honors Projects as well as Interdisciplinary Independent Study.
