Students from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. However, students with undergraduate degrees in the Arts or Humanities frequently use the IDP to further explore a topic or subject within a Humanities discipline. While a BA/BS degree or equivalent and GPA 3.0 in relevant area are required, students in the Graduate IDP program have a variety of backgrounds with diverse goals. More important than any closely related, requisite work is a clearly defined plan for your interdisciplinary studies.
