The Utica Campus

The Faculty BA Interdisciplinary Studies

The Program We live in an increasingly dynamic, complex, and globalized world. To meet modern society’s challenges and opportunities, we need the knowledge and skills that allow us to understand its complexities, navigate its landscapes, adapt to its changes, and engage its possibilities. The interdisciplinary studies program offers students an individualized curriculum that integrates focused study in a chosen area with an interdisciplinary perspective exploring the relationships among technology, culture, and society. The program is designed for students interested in a rigorous and flexible course of study that prepares them with the breadth and depth of knowledge to apply their preferred area of specialization to a wide range of career opportunities. By uniting their own interests with an interdisciplinary outlook, graduates are prepared to pursue opportunities in a rapidly changing world by asking questions from multiple perspectives, addressing complex issues by integrating knowledge from different disciplines, and solving problems in innovative and creative ways.

SUNY Poly faculty work closely with students and challenge them to excel. Many members of the faculty have experience in business and industry as well as academic credentials. A low student-to-faculty ratio (18:1) means faculty really get to know and work closely with students.

Concentrations Students have the flexibility to pursue a course of study that meets their intellectual interests and professional goals. Concentrations can be chosen from any major, minor, or concentration offered at SUNY Poly, from selected multidisciplinary fields, or designed by the student.

“SUNY Poly...Encouraging academic and intellectual

achievements in a challenging, culturally diverse and supportive educational environment.”

Located on hundreds of wooded and landscaped acres, the Utica campus is a beautiful living and learning environment. Freshmen live in the new Oriskany Residence Hall, one of three residential complexes, and enjoy an expanding array of facilities that includes a new student center and field house. Life on campus is enriched by a wide variety of events and activities, including the Wildcats’ championship-winning intercollegiate athletics program and a weekly menu of intramurals, concerts, comedians, and more. Students can join one of the dozens of clubs and organizations or start one with a group of friends who share an interest.
