Program Details

The University of Minnesota-Crookston offers an online Bachelor of Science degree in Mulitdisciplinary Studies for students with individual educational needs that cannot be met through traditional degree programs.  Students work with academic advisors to create a custom built program of study.  This degree is especially helpful for transfer students with certificate, diploma, or associate’s degrees in occupational fields.  In general, previous technical or community college credits are accepted into the student’s tailor-made program.  Likewise, those interested in becoming a commissioned officer in the Air Force will find this program useful in that the University of Maryland-Crookston works in conjunction with the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks promoting this degree in combination with their ROTC requirements.

Applicants must be aware that 60 credits are required before admission into this program.  Students complete two areas of study, one in a technical or occupational direction, and the other in a career specific direction.  Upon graduation students will demonstrate technical competencies in selected areas of study in an internship setting; skills in communication, problem solving and working with others in a capstone experience; and complete an individually tailored course of study that builds upon prior education and experience.


Students must complete 60 credits before admission to the program.
