Interdisciplinary Studies AF53

The Associate of Applied Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (AIS) allows customization of the program of study based on each student's academic and professional goals. The AIS requires completion of 61 semester credit hours (21 hours of general education requirements and 40 hours distributed among one or more areas of emphasis). Areas of concentration include education, public safety, business and computer/information technology, industrial/engineering technology, and health sciences. The program curriculum may be strategically selected to build upon the student's goals and objectives. Learning opportunities develop academic and professional knowledge and skills required for job acquisition or continued education. A student might choose an interdisciplinary studies program if his or her specific goals and interests cannot be met through a school's existing majors, minors and electives.
