Interdisciplinary Honors Major
B.A. or B.S. available in several areas of learning
The interdisciplinary honors major at Milligan allows students of exceptional academic ability and unique interests to design an individual course of study instead of pursuing an existing academic major. This allows students to fulfill an interest that is most meaningful to the student or prepare for a specific career requiring a broad range of knowledge.
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.
The interdisciplinary honors major is typically declared during a student’s freshman or sophomore year. The student forms a faculty oversight committee of at least three full-time professors, one of whom must be an area chair. The committee works with the applicant to construct an interdisciplinary honors major proposal consisting of at least 30 semester hours. The faculty committee also advises, initially approves, guides, and evaluates the individualized interdisciplinary honors major throughout the course of the student’s progress. Each interdisciplinary honors major must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5.
