Loyola's interdisciplinary studies programs give students the chance to examine topics from multiple perspectives, explore issues that emerge at the intersection of academic disciplines, and think creatively about themes and problems across departmental boundaries.

These programs draw on the broad intellectual resources of the university and the specialized expertise of teacher-scholars in a variety of departments. Through the integration of study abroad opportunities, internships, and collaborative learning, these programs help students better understand the inter-connections among fields of inquiry, global communities and cultures, and the diverse perspectives shaping the complex world outside the university.

Students interested in interdisciplinary study may choose among three majors and thirteen minors focusing on topics from Medieval Studies to Middle East Peace Studies. Loyola's New Orleans Studies Minor is unique in the nation, offering a broad range of courses and experiential study in the music, history, ecology, and sociology of the Crescent City. The Environmental Studies minor is also unique, as it offers students not only classroom study but also field work in the disappearing wetlands and on-side experiences in the natural environmental laboratory of the Gulf Coast.

Listed below are the requirements for interdisciplinary programs:
