Its multi- orinterdisciplinary curriculum also ensures that students willhave developed the critical-analytical skills increasinglyrequired in a globally-competitive employment market.The 30 hours of upper-division coursework for the B.A.in Interdisciplinary Studies are to be taken within theCollege of Arts, Sciences and Education or, asappropriate, from other FIU colleges or schools.The degree may be taken face to face or entirely online(online course offerings will vary semester-to-semester).To ensure that student interests, previous academichistory, and career plan coincide, a 3-credit hour“Capstone” course has been integrated into the degreerequirements. The Capstone course helps students selecta pathway from FIU academics to a career-world or postgraduate education.Degree Program Hours: 120Lower Division PreparationCommon Prerequisite Courses andEquivalenciesFIU Course(s)Equivalent Course(s)NoneNoneCourses which form part of the statewide articulationbetween the State University System and the FloridaCollege System will fulfill the Lower Division CommonPrerequisites.Please visit https://cpm.flvc.org for a current list of stateapproved common prerequisites.Common PrerequisitesNo specific courses required; all students transferring fromFlorida community colleges are encouraged to completethe Associate in Arts degree.Upper Division ProgramRequired Courses: (30 credits)Ten 3000- or 4000-level courses distributed in the areasbelow.
