2023-2024 Course Catalog

Interdisciplinary Majors

A major may be pursued through concentrated study in two related programs. Such a major consists of a minimum of eight courses in each of the two programs, exclusive of the integrated senior capstone. Individual programs require specific courses in fulfillment of the requirements. The capstone must integrate the subject matter of the two programs. Such a major must be approved by both programs and supported by a full-time faculty member who has agreed to advise the student and direct their program, particularly in the interrelations of the subjects to be studied. At least 50% of the credits toward the major must be completed at Chatham. A student must earn a G.P.A. of 2.0 or above within their major. Courses within the major with a recorded grade below C- must be repeated.

Students may select any two of the following interdisciplinary options two combine: Biology, Accounting, Economics, Management, Marketing, Cultural Studies, English, History, International Business, Mathematics, Music, Political Science, Psychology and Sustainability. Starting in the fall of 2023, students may not do an interdisciplinary major between any two majors within the department of Business and Data Science.
