SUMMARY

Choosing to study Interdisciplinary Studies is a valuable choice and naturally a required first step for scholars aspiring to pursue a career as an admissions counselor, an education administrator, or a grant writer. In fact, interdisciplinary studies is somewhat popular coming in at the 78th most popular major. In the last year, there were 5,508 interdisciplinary studies degrees conferred. In-state tuition for interdisciplinary studies at private universities is, on average, 3.4 times more costly than their public rivals.

There are 215 colleges that offer interdisciplinary studies. This number of universities is on par with other majors offered in the United States. If you are looking to surround yourself with other interdisciplinary studies undergraduates, look at colleges in Florida which have the most students admitted to interdisciplinary studies annually. More generally, the top region to pursue interdisciplinary studies is in the Southeast region with University of Central Florida, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, and Florida Atlantic University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the best conference to major in interdisciplinary studies is the American Athletic Conference with University of Central Florida representing the conference. That being said, our selection for the best college for interdisciplinary studies is Brown University. You may also want to check out our list of best colleges.

The 'best' school does not mean it is the 'best' school for you. There might be lots more perspectives to weigh when selecting school. Features such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food could definitely modify your decision on which university to attend. Here at Authority, we've weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which interdisciplinary studies school has the best college campus, the winner is Brown University. If, for example, you are very interested in which university has the best campus, then we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, government databases, professor reviews, and more in order to compare each major in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life here and our pick of the college with the best student life for interdisciplinary studies is Brown University. Curious why? Keep scrolling to learn more about our top recommendations. Some of our picks might surprise you.

If cost is a major factor in your decisions, you might consider avoiding Brown University. Brown University appears to be our most expensive school for interdisciplinary studies, at least for out of state enrollment. That being said, we have an entire page for the most expensive colleges that might put the price tag of Brown University into perspective. For more context, you may want to know that interdisciplinary studies is the 301st most expensive degree in the nation, with an average bill of $23,800. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for interdisciplinary studies nationally is Rhode Island with costs at the primary university, Brown University, of $57,112. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region of the U.S. for interdisciplinary studies is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Quinnipiac University with a cost of $46,790, Regis College with a cost of $42,650, and Brown University with a cost of $57,112.

Our cheapest region for interdisciplinary studies is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Boise State University with a cost of $22,452, Brigham Young University-Idaho with a cost of $4,208, and Dixie State University with a cost of $14,976. More optimistically, the most affordable school for interdisciplinary studies is Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania. Authority's comprehensive list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state attendees can anticipate paying around $8,900 for a degree in interdisciplinary studies. The price balloons intensely to a median of $21,400 for an out-of-state public-school student. Our pick for the school with the best value for interdisciplinary studies: Brown University. Here you will find our comprehensive list about the colleges we believe to be the best value in general. That being said, this discussion is predicated on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for interdisciplinary studies majors range widely, but within two years completing the major students will often make around $45,800. While there is much variation in pay; top earners can enjoy pay up to $68,800. Even right out of college, the lowest end jobs within the interdisciplinary studies field earn $30,900, which could be worse. The highest earning graduates from interdisciplinary studies have come from Quinnipiac University and if you are looking for universities with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The all-around diversity of interdisciplinary studies ranks decent, coming within the 71st percentile of all majors. The school with the most composite diversity for interdisciplinary studies is Brown University and here you can find our general list for the colleges with the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Interdisciplinary Studies major only ranks within the 91st percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is even lower in the 63rd percentile. White collegians make up the largest share at 55% of those studying interdisciplinary studies. Additionally, 62% of undergraduates pursuing an interdisciplinary studies major are women.

The median score for interdisciplinary studies' professors is 4.2 stars, a rating that is 5% greater than the median score across every major; this is a good score. If you are interested in the most popular interdisciplinary studies instructor in the nation, look no further than Michael Blitz from CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice. It may come as a surprise, but the highest ranked instructors of interdisciplinary studies from student rankings are found at University of Washington-Seattle Campus. If we consider data other than just rankings it becomes clear that the college with comprehensively the best instructors for interdisciplinary studies is Brown University. One will find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with many of the best instructors nationwide.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for interdisciplinary studies is Brown University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have an extensive list for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we hope you believe that looking at academics from examples only formed from superlatives can cause issues. We encourage you to explore our more focused pages on different universities and read a few of Authority's helpful background articles on useful things to look for as your college search develops.
