Is interdisciplinary studies the same as general studies?

General and interdisciplinary studies (sometimes called “integrated studies”) are often used interchangeably, but there is a fundamental difference between the two types of degree programs.

General studies programs typically cover a wide variety of course topics to provide students with broad skills in critical thinking to encourage lifelong learning.

Interdisciplinary/integrated studies programs are more career-focused than general studies, a combination of disciplines designed to help students pursue a particular career path.
