Interdisciplinary Humanities

Interdisciplinary Humanities

This major is one of the most flexible liberal arts majors offered at Michigan State. Students work closely with their academic adviser to craft a self-designed major based on either a triad or area studies model. Individual students have used this 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.
