Interdisciplinary studies

If you're looking to broaden your studies, an interdisciplinary program might be right for you. These programs address themes that extend beyond the perpective of a single academic area, covering a wider variety of courses with the support of multiple UVic faculties.

Most interdisciplinary programs are available as minors that can be added onto your primary degree studies, while some are also offered as majors and/or diplomas.

Visit the interdisciplinary website to learn more, or to speak with an adviser about designing your own interdisciplinary program.
