The Dept. of Multi-disciplinary Studies, in conjunction with other university departments, offers a broad range of courses (unlimited by disciplinary boundaries), in order to enable students to focus their studies around topics which hold particular interest for them. Thus, students may take topic-related courses even if they are offered in different departments

 The BA degree in the department can be taken only as part of a double major.

The unique structure of the department enables the students to balance their course load so as to fit with the course load of their other major.   This structure is suitable to many students seeking to balance the demands of work and study, in particular (but not only) military personnel and police officers.

Students, who have already begun their studies in another department and seek to transfer to the Dept. of Multi-disciplinary Studies, may request that some of the courses taken be recognized for credit toward the degree.
