Interdisciplinary Studies – Fine Arts & Humanities


Interdisciplinary Studies allows you the versatility to customize your program of study while achieving an Associate of Arts. Often, students enroll in college with no particular major in mind; yet they do have keen areas of enthusiasm for multiple fields. Interdisciplinary Studies satisfy this desire for a degree composed of various disciplines.

After transferring the associate’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies to a four-year institution, you will receive guidance in creating a defined path of coursework that will support your specific interests and potential career opportunities. For example, you might be fascinated by both art and psychology and combine these interests to earn an advanced degree and work as an art therapist.

By completing the Associate of Arts degree at Hinds, you will lay a strong foundation in critical thinking, oral and written communication, and technology use, preparing you to complete a bachelor’s degree at a four-year college. The courses for the fine arts and humanities interdisciplinary area of study cover the diverse disciplines of physical science, mathematics, composition and literature, art, and multiple social sciences—including geography, religion, psychology, political science, sociology, and anthropology.
