Multidisciplinary Studies Program: Professional Studies Specialization
What Randall’s Multidisciplinary Studies Program has to offer:
The Multidisciplinary Studies Program has been designed for the student who needs a non-traditional format and is serious about reaching his or her academic goals. Each student admitted into this program is assigned to a faculty advisor. He/she works closely with the faculty advisor to develop an individualized program of study requiring a minimum of 120 credit hours. This program of study includes course work in several subject areas as listed in our College Catalog. Individual courses are to be selected in consultation with the faculty advisor. Students must be 21 years of age before entering the program. The intent is to allow students to complete the degree program in the context of their adult professional and personal live with courses fully online.
Opportunities with a Multidisciplinary Studies degree:
A student who graduates with the Bachelor of Arts in Multidisciplinary Studies degree will be equipped to continue their education in graduate studies or enter a career field related to their selected areas of study, like ministry or business.
The Multidisciplinary Studies Program has a two-fold purpose: first, to provide a broad general education with a biblical and religious studies core, and secondly, to afford the student an opportunity to define the territory of intellectual inquiry to prepare students for service in the church, entry into the job market, or attendance at graduate school.
The general objectives for the degree are as follows:
- Competency in communication of ideas
- Application of knowledge across the various disciplines
- Integration of Christian principles with the student’s primary area of competence
