Interdepartmental Studies

Coordinator

  • Andrew Tinkham
Undergraduate major: interdepartmental studies (B.A.)
Web site: http://www.uiowa.edu/~indepart/

The Interdepartmental Studies Program (ISP) provides an alternative to traditional undergraduate majors. It gives students the opportunity to design an individualized plan of study or to choose a preapproved plan in applied human services, business studies, or health science. Each track includes course work from a variety of departments.

Since the major in interdepartmental studies affords opportunities outside the traditional degree pattern, students must create or choose study programs that meet their individual educational and career objectives. Those who plan to seek employment immediately after graduation should familiarize themselves with the educational background and qualifications required by employers and should include appropriate courses in their study programs.

Students preparing for advanced study should become familiar with the admissions requirements of graduate or professional schools that interest them. The earlier students decide to pursue graduate or professional study, the easier it is to complete necessary prerequisites.

Undergraduate Program of Study

  • Major in interdepartmental studies (Bachelor of Arts)

Bachelor of Arts

The Bachelor of Arts with a major in interdepartmental studies requires a minimum of 120 s.h., including at least 36-38 s.h. of work for the major. Students choose one of four tracks: individualized plan of study, applied human services, business studies, or health science. Credit required for the major depends on the student's choice of track.

Students who choose the individualized plan of study track design their own major. Those who choose the applied human services track, business studies track, or health science track follow a preapproved study plan, which includes foundation courses and a selection of emphasis areas. The applied human services track offers three emphasis areas: aging services, community-based services, and corrections services. The business studies track offers three emphasis areas: workplace practices and perspectives, values and ethics, and arts management. The health science track offers five emphasis areas: multidisciplinary science, entrepreneurship, aging, global health, and cultures of healing.

All students must complete the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences General Education Program.

Interdepartmental studies students who earn a second major may count a maximum of two courses from the second major toward the interdepartmental studies major. This policy applies no matter what degree is earned with the second major (Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and so forth).

Students majoring in interdepartmental studies who earn minors in other departments or programs may not count courses from the minors toward the interdepartmental studies major.

The major in interdepartmental studies requires the following course work.

Individualized Plan of Study Track

The individualized plan of study track requires a minimum of 36 s.h. of work for the major, all taken at The University of Iowa. Students who choose this track build their own study plan, creating a unique major that speaks to interests across departments and that integrates varied approaches to a particular topic (e.g., aging studies, international business, children's studies, environmental issues, health issues).

Students must submit their study plan for approval. The plan must include an essay that provides a clear statement of the area of intellectual focus; the reasons for preferring the ISP to any departmental program; a concrete discussion of how the advanced courses relate to each other, to personal interests, and to the central focus of the study plan; a description of academic goals for the bachelor's degree; a list of advanced-level course work already completed; and a list of advanced-level course work planned for all remaining semesters.

Each study plan is approved by a faculty advisory committee. Reviews are held once a semester. Deadlines are posted on the Interdepartmental Studies Program web site.

If the advisory committee does not grant approval, the study plan may be returned to the student for revisions and resubmission at the next committee meeting. In some cases, the student may be referred to an appropriate departmental major.

Once the study plan is approved, the student is required to follow the plan, taking the courses approved for it. A limited number of substitutions may be allowed, but only if they are clearly consistent with the area of intellectual focus in the approved study plan, and only if they are approved in advance by the ISP advisor. Unauthorized substitutions may be designated as elective course work.

Significant changes in the focus of a student's study plan require the submission and approval of a revised study plan. The student's academic advisor determines whether changes warrant a revised plan.

See the Interdepartmental Studies Program web site for up-to-date information on the individualized plan of study track and rules for submission of study plans.

Students who choose the individualized plan of study track are advised by the Interdepartmental Studies Program coordinator; they work closely with the Interdepartmental Studies Program office while designing the study plan. Students who intend to submit a study plan should contact the Interdepartmental Studies Program coordinator as early as possible.

Applied Human Services Track

The applied human services track requires 37-38 s.h. of work for the major. It provides a preapproved plan of study that combines a generalized psychology background with a choice of three emphasis areas: aging services, community-based services, and corrections services. Students who choose this track also have the option of proposing their own human services-related emphasis area to the faculty advisory committee.

Applied human services track students must complete foundation course work (25-26 s.h.) and one emphasis area (12 s.h.). They must complete a minimum of 15 s.h. of work for the major at The University of Iowa. The Academic Advising Center advises applied human services track students; contact the center for more information about requirements.

Health Science Track

The health science track requires 37 s.h. of work for the major. It provides a preapproved plan of study that combines a generalized health background with a varied choice of emphasis areas: multidisciplinary science, entrepreneurship, aging, global health, and cultures of healing. Students who choose this track also have the option of proposing their own health science-related emphasis area to the faculty advisory committee.

Health science track students must complete foundation course work (22 s.h.) and one emphasis area (15 s.h.). They must complete a minimum of 15 s.h. for the major at The University of Iowa. The Academic Advising Center advises health science track students; contact the center for more information about requirements.
