Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Studies at Tufts

Through the oversight of the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies (CIS), Tufts undergraduates have the opportunity to tailor their own multidisciplinary areas of concentration to pursue courses with greater freedom of choice than in the listed majors. This Interdisciplinary Studies major program allows for an integration of traditional disciplines, a melding of fields that cannot be accomplished by the usual structure of a major/minor or a double major/minor. Read more about Interdisciplinary Studies in Jumbo, the Tufts Admissions Magazine.

Tufts also offers undergraduates the opportunity to pursue a senior thesis outside their major area of concentration through the CIS senior thesis program.
