Our Story

This program’s flexible curriculum allows adult students to maximize credits already earned and shorten the time needed to complete the degree.

Multidisciplinary Studies (MDS) students have a great deal of freedom in selecting upper-division course work that meets their individual life and career goals. Additionally, students can complete their degree plan requirements completely online. Students Individual Degree Plans (IDP) are developed in MDS 300 – Communicating Universally.

Students will work closely with an advisor to develop an academic degree plan that will help them meet their stated goals. Students desiring a more narrowly focused, discipline-specific course of study should consider one of Boise State’s traditional majors.

Students considering applying to the Multidisciplinary Studies program should contact the MDS Intake Advisor at [email protected] for general information and assistance with applying to the program.
