Student Learning Outcomes
Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (B.S.)

“The purpose of the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Interdisciplinary Studies Program is to provide an opportunity for IUPUI students to construct individual majors that are science-based, interdisciplinary, and not represented by an existing major program”. Interdisciplinary Studies Majors create individualized courses of study; each student, in consultation with his or her faculty mentor, will individually develop student learning outcomes. The following SLOs, however, are common for all Interdisciplinary Studies Majors:

  1. Create and develop an individualized plan of study for the proposed major, the interdisciplinary nature between science and at least one other discipline.
  2. Design, in consultation with a faculty mentor, 4-6 individualized Student Learning Outcomes that specify an action or outcome of the plan of study that is observable, measurable, and capable of being demonstrated.
  3. Successfully design, present, and defend an experimental or literature-based research project or internship experience, culminating with a written report or presentation of the findings.
