Interdisciplinary Studies

​​Santiago Canyo College offers multiple interdisciplinary degrees and certificates which span the boundaries of traditional academic majors. Students are provided with opportunities to pursue areas of emphases deriving from the interaction of different disciplines. The sequences of courses lead to degrees and certificates which incorporate concepts from the humanities and arts, the natural sciences and the social sciences. The broad framework of these awards enables students to explore the range of human knowledge.

Each degree and certificate includes a focused study in at least one established interdisciplinary core. Each award specifies the requirements necessary to earn the degree or the certificate.

For the Liberal Arts degrees, the areas of inquiry are referred to as "emphasis requirements". Major requirements for the associate degrees are in addition to the general education requirements. Certificates of Achievement do n​ot require general education.
