Welcome to the Office of Interdisciplinary Programs!
In our office, we coordinate the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies degree and the minors in American Indian Studies, Black Studies, Nonprofit Studies, and Women's and Gender Studies. In addition, we offer the Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Studies. We also support many of the interdisciplinary centers and initiatives including the Center for American Indian Research and Studies, the Center for Black Studies, and the Southern Miss Debate Society. There are many exciting events and courses offered here at Southern Miss that bring together students from a wide range of disciplines to learn from our diverse past and to address current complex issues using a variety of tools and approaches. We are committed to experiential learning and real-life applications of our knowledge to face real-world questions. Students find exciting ways to explore how their skills and talents can apply to the world around them.
