The College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHASS) at North Carolina State University has a long history of interdisciplinary teaching and research. In order to better serve the needs of NC State and our society, CHASS aims to strengthen its current efforts and expand its offering of interdisciplinary programs. We have a commitment to make interdisciplinary programs available to geographically dispersed and diverse populations through distance education.
In Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) Programs, undergraduate degrees are available, including dual-degree programs. Discover more on the About Us & Undergraduate Programs webpages regarding the 18 Major options and 10 Minors offered. Graduate interdisciplinary degrees are also offered: a thematic, self-designed Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS), a M.A. in English with a concentration in Film Studies, and a Ph.D. in Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media (CRDM).
