Concentrations

Considerations for Declaring this Major

  • During the first year at Molloy or at any time thereafter, a highly motivated student desiring admittance to the Interdisciplinary Studies major can declare areas of concentration with the Program Director for this major. The candidate will present a rationale that has internal coherence. This rationale must demonstrate that the student has a unique goal, unobtainable in any already existing major.
  • Approval for the student to proceed as a major in Interdisciplinary Studies will be decided by the Program Director for Interdisciplinary Studies. In the event of a conflict, the final decision will be made by the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
  • Transfer students will be required to take 9-12 credits of the required credits for each area of concentration on the Molloy campus.
