Rockhurst Interdisciplinary Studies


Rockhurst offers numerous programs for Interdisciplinary Studies which provide a path for students to understand how different skills and careers interact with one another in the real world. Focusing on an interdisciplinary approach allows students to learn a variety of academic topics and approaches with the intent of how they can apply those skills after graduation.

The ability to understand multiple disciplines and mastering the ability to switch disciplinary languages makes students involved in the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies better prepared for their chosen career paths.
