• Interdisciplinary Studies (Student & Advisor Designed)

    Intended for students who wish to pursue more than one area of study while gaining a solid core of Bible and theology, Kuyper College’s interdisciplinary program provides an avenue for students to design a personalized field of inquiry. The interdisciplinary studies major draws from multiple academic fields to provide students with a Christian college experience that will equip them for vocational objectives that lie outside the boundaries of traditional majors. Along with an advisor, students create an independent educational plan that addresses their unique interests and goals.
    With an advisor, students will plan their interdisciplinary major carefully with an eye to preparing for their future vocations and/or graduate school. To this end, students will choose two to four competencies that they will gain through their self-selected program. During their senior year, students will take two continuous courses that will guide them through choosing an issue in their field to conduct primary and secondary research on; they will then use this research to complete a 25 page capstone project that integrates the knowledge they have gained from across the disciplines.
