Interdisciplinary Humanities

A group of smiling humanities majors walk side by side down a hallway in a building on MSU’s campus.

Interested in an interdisciplinary humanities major? 

This major is one of MSU’s most flexible liberal arts majors. Students work closely with their academic adviser to craft a self-designed major based on either a triad or area studies model. 

Students have used the interdisciplinary humanities major to develop personal programs of study related to particular cultures or regions of the world, to focus on specific time periods, or to develop broad liberal arts skills relevant to career objectives in public relations, human services, arts management, medicine, international diplomacy and business. 


Graduates with an interdisciplinary humanities major pursue careers in a range of industries, excelling in jobs that demand deep knowledge of arts, humanities and communications.
