Why Interdisciplinary Studies at NSC?
Because at Nevada State College, we value pioneering thinkers, independence, and innovation. To support these values, we created the†Interdisciplinary Studies program, which allows students to design their own individualized course of study and focus on their own particular interests.††
Instead of choosing a traditional major, Interdisciplinary Studies students select a concentration and a minor, which combine to become the equivalent of a single major. This allows for over 160 possible degree combinations, such as:
Our newest major†concentration is in†Health and Wellness, which prepares students to work in the growing field of health education.†
Each of these combinations allow students to look at problems from multiple perspectives and develop innovative solutions. To help students explore the ways their two concentrations intersect, the College offers two independent courses, ISC 300 and 495.† In these classes, instructors provide individual guidance and personalized attention that leads students through the completion of a capstone project.† This project provides concrete evidence of the studentís abilities, and can be used on the job market or when applying to graduate school.†
The†faculty of Nevada State College invites all students to explore the possibilities the Interdisciplinary Studies degree offers. For examples of what our graduates have done with their ISC degrees, please see our featured graduates page.†For more information, please contact:
