For over 35 years, the Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) program at USC Upstate has provided students with the opportunity to broaden their education. Currently, more than 250 students are choosing to major in IDS.
With the support of an advisor, IDS students develop a multi-disciplinary or individualized program of study.

IDS is an exciting and dynamic degree program that allows students to combine coursework from various disciplines while designing a curriculum that meets their academic and career goals. From freshmen to students completing their degree, the IDS major is available to students at all levels of
their academic careers.
