MULTIDISCIPLINARY STUDIES MAJOR
"We have a major for that!"
Multidisciplinary Studies (MDS) is an individualized major program offered by the University of Oklahoma that provides students the unique opportunity to design an innovative major tailored to their academic or professional interests. The ability to select major courses from a combination of the University of Oklahoma's many departments/colleges allows the student to be in charge of his/her education in a unique way. Multidisciplinary Studies students can customize their major work to academically and professionally prepare for a field that incorporates information from multiple areas or a specialized field not represented by a pre-determined degree program.
Students completing a degree in the Multidisciplinary Studies major will be eligible for either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Oklahoma. The major requirements for each MDS student are determined individually in consultation with an Academic Advisor and are submitted for approval through the MDS major application process. Each student's designed major plan consists of a theme title for their area of concentration and a list of the courses which they intend to complete in their specified field of study. The student's major theme should clearly describe the overarching concept and goals of their selected field of study. An individualized program theme can be centered around a specific topic, problem, activity, historical perspective, or region of the world.
