The Division of Multidisciplinary Programs also serves as the coordinating office for the various interdisciplinary minor programs offered through the College of Liberal and Applied Arts. These minors include: Classical Studies, Film Studies, Gender Studies, International Studies, Latin American Studies, Leadership, and Religious Studies. These minor programs are open to students, and information on each individual program can be found by following the link for "Interdisciplinary Minor Programs" found on the left hand side of the page.
As Stephen F. Austin State University is dedicated to offering the Lumberjack population those opportunities that will be prepare them for the challenges of living and working in a global community, it is the belief our division that one of the strongest opportunities that we can provide is the option for interdisciplinary study and learning. This type of learning situation encourages students to broaden their academic horizons through participating in our enriching programs. These programs focus on an umbrella area of study (e.g International Studies) and combine coursework from a number of different academic disciplines. As such, these programs have been thoughtfully designed to display how similar academic and professional exchanges occur in differing arenas of study. Furthermore, we believe that linking these studies together better prepares students to solve complex problems encountered in everyday life.
