Top Interdisciplinary and Dual Degree Programs

Dual/Interdisciplinary degree programs offer undergraduates the chance to earn a degree that crosses academic disciplines in a more streamlined fashion than in the case of a traditional double or triple major. For example, Lehigh University, the renowned engineering school, offers students the opportunity to earn a combined degree in Computer Science and Business or Business and Engineering. Meanwhile, bastions of intellectualism like the University of Chicago and Brown offer truly interdisciplinary degrees that involve study across five or more academic departments. The following list of Top Dual/Interdisciplinary Degree Programs highlights the most prestigious programs in the country that meet the above criteria.
