Program in
Interdisciplinary Studies

Imaginative, Individualized, and Boundary-Breaking. Just like you.  

Make your college degree all your own at MMC with a major in interdisciplinary studies (IDS). IDS programs are individualized, self-designed, and boundary-crossing—an exact fit for your interests. The most compelling topics require different perspectives. What is the science behind great works of art? What do sociologists and historians teach us about race in the dance world? Design sound with technical know-how and insights from the production of music and poetry; make films about sustainability, drawing upon your knowledge of history and international development; understand animation and comics in historical and theoretical perspective. As an IDS major, you will work closely with faculty to assemble the program that is yours, and yours alone.

“The IDS major can be everything you want it to be, you will get as much out of it as you put into it. The tools are provided; the opportunities are there, especially being in New York City.”
-Alexis Van Dijk, ’14
