Interdisciplinary Programs at CSUB

The Interdisciplinary Studies Program at CSUB allows students to examine concepts, issues, and perspectives that cross traditional boundaries of study, and to combine elements of distinct disciplines in a unique way. CSUB offers three Interdisciplinary Studies concentrations: 1) General Studies where students create their own program of study drawing on at least two different departments; 2) Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; 3) Ethnic and Area Studies
