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.
