Lower Columbia College, in partnership with Eastern Washington University, offers four-year degree programs to students on the LCC campus!
Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies
An excellent option for students who are not sure what to major in, or who have completed an associate degree at LCC, but family, work, money, time or other factors make it difficult to earn a bachelor's degree.
Students combine multiple areas such as communications, psychology, sociology, business, computer science into a comprehensive degree that is flexible, adaptable and engaging.
Eastern Washington University describes the degree as:
Ideal for students who prefer a multidisciplinary major, this option combines 60 upper division credits from two or three academic departments, programs or certificates. Multidisciplinary students follow the guidance of department chairs and the Interdisciplinary Studies Director to design their courses in an area in which a traditional major does not exist. The student's program of study emphasizes cognitive skills, theoretical and research abilities, and content knowledge that is thematically related to the student's career or graduate studies.
Why do employers like to hire students with a Bachelors of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies?
Successful graduates have acquired important skills that employers value, such as the ability to learn quickly, see connections among concepts and adapt to changing situations, leading to many employment opportunities.
