Interdisciplinary Studies

InterdisciplinaryThe Interdisciplinary or "build your own" major offers the student with the option of designing, in consultation with an advisor, a program uniquely suited to a student educational objective.


In order to be considered for approval for an interdisciplinary major the student must be in good academic standing. Students interested in exploring the possibilities of this major should consult with an advisor to determine an appropriate program of study and time-table for completion of degree requirements.

The student will develop a proposal that outlines the curricular plan for the major.The proposal must be approved by the advisor and the chair of each department in which the student includes courses for the interdisciplinary major.  This plan must be submitted for final approval to the academic dean no later than the end of the fourth semester of the student's enrollment at Waldorf.  Approval programs will be kept on file in the Registrar's office.
