Our Student Designed Interdisciplinary Major (SDIM) is perfect for students with motivation to pursue their own unique course of study. It's designed for students who have an interest other than the ones covered by our traditional majors—our Saints look outside the box to form their path to success.
SDIM can be a primary major or a second major.
Students who design their own major earn a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in their area of study.
Some of the concentrations a student might pursue include:
Latin American Studies
Middle Eastern Studies
Peace and War Studies
We've Got What You're Looking For

This includes: broadcast and society, criminal justice, Franciscan service and advocacy, health management, health studies, international business, international studies, Medieval and Renaissance studies, multicultural studies, multimedia, peace studies, Revolutionary Era studies, women’s studies. Less disciplinarily focused options might include: human consciousness studies, animal ethics, power and the human condition, poverty and the American experience.
Faculty Make the Difference
Although you are creating your own path of study—you won't be on it alone. Our SDIM gives students a mentoring community that is with them every step of the way.
