A well-rounded educational experience

Many employers seek individuals with a broad educational background that focuses on writing, analyzing, evaluating and reasoning.

With a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies, you have the opportunity to develop your ability to write well, communicate effectively, work with groups, engage in problem solving, and think critically — timeless skills that are applicable to every part of life.

Complete your degree entirely online

Our online degree-completion program is a cohort-based major in Interdisciplinary Studies that enables qualified applicants to complete a degree in just over two years. Classes are offered entirely online, at your own pace — no required in-person classes, ever — and students focus on 2 courses at a time in 15-week terms. The program is offered by the School of Professional & Continuing Studies through the University of Richmond’s learning management system.

Complete a degree started elsewhere

Transfer your associate’s degree or equivalent 60 semester hours from another regionally accredited institution. Then complete the remainder of your degree, another 60 hours over 10 courses, at the University of Richmond. You’ll be able to enroll as a full-time student while taking courses during fall, spring and summer terms.
