Interdisciplinary Honors – B.A. or B.S.
Available in Several Areas of Learning
The Interdisciplinary Honors major fulfills the college’s mission statement
“ . . . to honor God by educating men and women to be servant-leaders” as the student who completes the major:
The Interdisciplinary Honors major is available to the exceptional student in good standing, with an ACT of 27 or above and a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5, or a minimum GPA of 3.8 after 45 Milligan hours, who desires to pursue a degree especially crafted to address the student’s talents and interests, and which is not already an established major within Milligan College. Such a major allows a student to pursue an interest that is most meaningful to the student or to prepare for a specific career requiring a broad range of knowledge.
Requirements for the Interdisciplinary Honors major are at least 30 semester hours of course work as identified by the student and the faculty oversight committee. A student desiring to pursue the major must initially secure the permission of the Academic Dean. Contact the Academic Dean’s office for further information.
To earn a bachelor’s degree, a student must complete 128 semester hours in courses with course numbers at the 100 level or above. In addition to courses in the major (and minor, if applicable), students must complete the requirements for a bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree as described on Pages 39-43 of the 2012-13 catalog. The B.A. degree requires foreign language through the intermediate level.
Senior Major Exam
The senior major exam, which is required of all baccalaureate degree-seeking students and evaluates the students in their major fields of study, is administered during the semester in which the student plans to graduate. Students pursuing double majors must complete a major exam in each major. The senior major exam for the Interdisciplinary Honors major is created by the faculty.
