Choosing a Great Multi / Interdisciplinary Studies School for Your Bachelor's Degree

Best Multi / Interdisciplinary Studies Bachelor's Degree Schools Your choice of multi / interdisciplinary studies for getting your bachelor's degree school matters. Important measures of a quality multi / interdisciplinary studies program can vary widely even among the top schools. When choosing a school we recommend considering some of the following factors:

Quality Overall Is Important

A school that excels in educating for a particular major and degree level must be a great school overall as well. To make it into this list a school must rank well in our overall Best Colleges ranking. This ranking considered factors such as graduation rates, overall graduate earnings and other educational resources to identify great colleges and universities.

The lowest ranked school in our list is in the top 11% of our overall quality ranking while the vast majority are in at least the top 6%.

Average Earnings

To determine the overall quality of a graduate school, one factor we look at is the average early-career salary of those receiving their bachelor's degree from the school. This is because one of the main reasons people pursue their bachelor's degree is to enable themselves to find better-paying positions.

Other Factors We Consider

In addition to the above, you should consider some of the following factors:

  • Major Focus - How much a school focuses on multi / interdisciplinary studies students vs. other majors.
  • Major Demand - How many other multi / interdisciplinary studies students want to attend this school to pursue a bachelor's degree.
  • Educational Resources - The amount of money and other resources allocated to students while they are pursuing their degree. These resources include such things as number of students per instructor and education expenditures per student.
  • Student Debt - How much debt multi / interdisciplinary studies students go into to obtain their bachelor's degree and how well they are able to pay back that debt.
  • Accreditation - Whether a school is regionally accredited and/or accredited by a recognized multi / interdisciplinary studies related body.

Our complete ranking methodology documents in more detail how we consider these factors to identify the best schools for multi / interdisciplinary studies students working on their bachelor's degree.

One Size Does Not Fit All

The multi / interdisciplinary studies school you choose to invest your time and money in matters. To help you make the decision that is right for you, we've developed a number of major-specific rankings, including this list of the Best Multi / Interdisciplinary Studies Bachelor's Degree Schools.
