Interdisciplinary Studies at Coastal Carolina University offers highly motivated and intellectually curious students the opportunity to develop an individualized, innovative and integrated major. As an alternative to a traditional major, self-directed students are engaged and mentored by faculty to build a program of study around an interrelated unifying issue, topic, theme, culture or personal inquiry. Students are requested to complete a minimum of 24 credit hours with a 2.0 cumulative GPA before joining the major.
