Interdisciplinary Studies (INDS) at UMBC is one of the longest-standing individualized degree majors in the country. It was founded in 1969 as Option II, an alternative to the 13 traditional majors contained in Option I. In 1979, Option II was renamed Interdisciplinary Studies, to better reflect the nature of the major and to respond to the growing national movement toward multidisciplinary and integrative approaches to learning and problem solving.
