In Interdisciplinary Studies, students can choose to pursue a Bachelor of Science with a cognate requirement or a Bachelor of Arts with a foreign language requirement and one of three concentrations:
- Individualized Studies: This academic plan must include a total of 18 credits of upper-division coursework from any academic programs in the university to build content knowledge in a specific area(s) of focus.
- Integrative Studies: This academic plan must include two minor programs of study chosen in consultation with faculty and staff advisors from any academic programs in the university to build content knowledge in specific areas of focus.
- Exploratory Studies: Designed for students still exploring their major options.
Students who begin their UNO journey in the Exploratory Studies concentration will be liberated from the pressure of having to “choose” a major, instead encouraged to explore different major and minor options before they select a major. It will also serve students who may need to improve their academic standing to consider their primary options.
