Interdisciplinary Studies

Students wishing to explore courses of study not offered by individual departments or by existing interdisciplinary majors may petition for a self-designed, interdisciplinary major. A self-designed major at Wisconsin Lutheran College allows a motivated student to establish a personalized program, taking full advantage of the college's liberal arts foundation.

  • In keeping with the spirit of Christian liberal arts education, the interdisciplinary major at Wisconsin Lutheran College allows a student great flexibility, while ensuring that each program is constructed from existing disciplines and courses. Under the guidance of a faculty committee specially appointed by a college dean, such students may develop majors combining courses from several departments or areas.

    Each interdisciplinary major must have a coherent thematic principle governing the selection and sequencing of courses in the major, must include a culminating project or thesis which demonstrates the outcomes of the major, and must be approved in all particulars by the specially appointed committee. Students who would like to explore an interdisciplinary major are urged to consult with a college dean and the Office of the Registrar.
