The Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degree programs in Multidisciplinary Studies are university-wide degrees administered through the College of Arts and Sciences. Academic Counselors for the Multidisciplinary Studies program are listed on their advising website.

If you wish to pursue this degree program, you would propose a major theme of study with a course plan in coordination with an MDS academic counselor. The course plan must be approved by the Provost. Specific information about the MDS program is available on the MDS home page.

Students transferring from other universities and wishing to major in Multidisciplinary Studies must meet with an MDS academic counselor for an evaluation of credits. Please call 405-325-4411 to schedule a Transfer Student appointment.
