Picking from the hundreds of exciting courses UVic has to offer can be a challenge, especially if you want to keep your options open and sample studies from more than one faculty.

If you're interested in completing a degree unique to your individual tastes, consider enrolling in one of UVic's 10 flexible interdisciplinary programs to learn across faculties and add some flavour to your studies.

Interested in film but not sure how to get more from movies? With a minor in film studies you can brush up on your film history, learn how to write a screenplay and study how cinema fits into African popular culture -- all in one comprehensive program.

UVic's interdisciplinary options offer you the opportunity to broaden your world view and pursue a topic you're interested in that doesn't quite fit into just one faculty.

To plan a program including an interdisciplinary general or minor, meet with an undergraduate academic adviser or a graduate academic adviser and make sure you're on the right track.
