Carve Your Own Path
As an interdisciplinary studies major at North Greenville University, you will spend much of your time growing as a broad-based integrator for Christ; crossing disciplinary borders while thinking per crucem (“through the cross”); building a major responsive to your career calling while coming to a fuller understanding of what your calling is; and, therefore, learning about the world and about yourself.
You will focus on cutting-edge skills and predispositions such as holistic thinking, synthesis, metacognition, active imagination, global awareness, multimodal communication, accountability and leadership, impact-based learning, and career flexibility.
City of Greenville Partnerships
Our partnerships in Greenville – ranging from The International Center of the Upstate to the alternative high school Next and from M. Judson Bookstore’s storytelling events to Open Works’ collaborative work-space – provide our students with opportunities to network and test out theories in the real world.
Our longstanding interdisciplinary arts events, held both on and off campus, give our students a “culture lab” for exploring the integration of faith and creative arts. We get plenty of practice in “doing space” – in creating events and engaging culture.
“The Mountain Laurel” Magazine
Interdisciplinary studies students have led the way in sharing their verbal and visual works in this award-winning art and literary publication at NGU.
Interdisciplinary Community at Large
Our program is successful only because students are allowed, right from the get-go, to buy in, to take on leadership roles, and to co-create the program. Our alumni base is strong, so this process continues well after graduation.
Elevate Your Perspective
You’ll also take Chapel every semester, and Cultural Events for the first four semesters. You earn credit through attendance, and each course counts as half a credit. This is the NGU difference, how you find your peak performance and elevate your perspective, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
