Individually Designed Interdisciplinary Program (IDIP)
At Emerson College, students are encouraged to follow their interests and goals—wherever they may lead. Even with the multitude of arts and communications majors and minors from which to choose, students occasionally have a vision that cannot be adequately realized within these offerings. The Individually Designed Interdisciplinary Studies Program (IDIP) allows students to design their own major by combining courses from two or more departments, or a department and the Institute, around an anchoring concept or theme.
Students designing their own majors have the opportunity to create an advising team of two faculty members from different academic departments or the Institute that will help shape their program of study and provide support and guidance through to graduation. Examples of past IDIP foci include:
- Global Activism and Advocacy;
- Media Production and Management;
- Effective Marketing through Digital Media Design;
- Politics, Performance and Social Advocacy;
- Investigative Theater for Social Change.
This exciting program provides a home for students who desire to create a unique and dynamic space for their academic and career goals.
An individually designed interdisciplinary program (IDIP) is a major program of study in a well-defined area of interest consisting of courses from two or more academic departments (including the Institute). Students design an IDIP in consultation with the Academic Advising Center and faculty members from the different department(s)/Institute where the coursework is based. Prerequisites for coursework, as determined in consultation with faculty advisors, should be included in the program of study. The program of study should total a minimum of 44 and a maximum of 52?credits.?
