of the multiple areas of study. Our Armed Forces are some of the most highly trained
and versatile people in our nation. The degree would allow them to direct their multitude
of skill sets toward a ﬂexible college degree path. The program would not only help
them succeed academically, but give them the tools they need to apply their skills
and do well in all aspects of life.”

different angles. Interdisciplinary Studies allows me to do that and much more. I
