Norfolk State University in Virginia has announced that it will offer an accelerated three-year bachelor’s degree program in interdisciplinary studies. Students in the degree program will be required to take a core curriculum that focuses on critical thinking, research methods, globalization, and communications skills. Students can concentrate in history, sociology, psychology, biology, and other disciplines.
Khadijah O. Miller, associate professor and chair of the department of interdisciplinary studies at Norfolk State University, said, “The degree program prepares students for today’s fast-paced, high-demand, and multiple-task oriented work force.”
