The specialty areas for the B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies represent several concentration areas that students may follow toward completion of the degree and Texas Teacher Certification. Students desiring to earn the B.S. Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies must:

  1. be admitted to the University,
  2. satisfy University and state testing requirements,
