The Bachelor of Science, Interdisciplinary Studies - Social Sciences major (IDS) is available to students whose interests overstep traditional departmental boundaries; it is meant for those who wish to play an unusually active role in determining their course of study. One who completes the major earns a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies - Social Sciences.

Since the program is a student-designed, interdisciplinary major, course selections will vary by student. The program offers students an opportunity to devise an approved, coherent program of study with a Program Director to fulfill academic or career goals. Students in the Interdisciplinary Studies major must take courses in at least three disciplines within the major.

CWU-Yakima offers the IDS program with many course delivery options including traditional classroom, interactive television, web centric, and online classes. Additionally, both majors can be completed entirely online.

Here is what one of our students had to say about the Interdisciplinary Studies-Social Sciences major:

"My advisor and course instructors challenged old ideals, fostered a learning environment of excellence and responded with feedback to enhance my learning while in college. Because of this, I am prepared to pursue a career or seek a candidacy in a Master's program."
