The Center for Interdisciplinary Studies (CIS), housed in the Carolina Inn on Main Street, offers a number of interdisciplinary majors that are not offered by an academic department or program. Please see the current CIS web pages for a list of available majors and instructions for how to apply.

CIS majors require careful planning, especially in working with advisers to plan their required senior capstone. Applicants must show that the necessary courses will be available; they must find two willing and available capstone and major advisers; they must propose a workable research project that will lead to a thesis or capstone project.

There is no guarantee that a student can major through the CIS; interested sophomores apply by the Friday before spring break and are notified of the results three weeks later. It is strongly recommended that students interested in pursuing a CIS major meet with the Director sometime during their first-year spring or sophomore fall semester.
