Interdisciplinary Studies – General Studies

About

Interdisciplinary Studies give you the versatility to customize a 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 in 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, a student will receive guidance in creating a defined path of coursework that will support the student’s specific interests and potential career opportunities.

In completing the Associate of Arts degree at Hinds, students will lay a strong foundation in critical thinking, oral and written communication, and technology use so that they are prepared to complete a bachelor’s degree at a four-year college. The courses for this Interdisciplinary degree cover the diverse disciplines of natural science and physical sciences, mathematics, economics, composition and literature, speech, art, music, and multiple social sciences—including geography, psychology, political science, sociology, and anthropology.
