Multidisciplinary Multidisciplinary studies programs are not a pre-determined course of study as are most degree programs, but are rather a unique combination of courses chosen by a student based upon his or her specific educational and career interests. Students typically combine courses from up to three disciplines. A student might choose a multidisciplinary studies program if his or her specific goals and interests cannot be met through a school's existing majors, minors and electives. Multidisciplinary studies are also an option for students to combine completed coursework from various disciplines and want to combine them into a single degree program.
MULTIDISCIPLINARY STUDIES cont… China Spring High School Multidisciplinary career pathway includes one of the following: • 4 X 4 content area (4 credits in each the core subjects including Math, Science, Social Studies and English Language Arts ) • 4 X 4 content area with Honors – must have 4 credits that are AP and/or dual credit, or a combination. Overall, multidisciplinary studies program breaks traditional boundaries of course curricula and offers a broader learning experience as you pursue your personal and professional interests. In a multidisciplinary studies degree program, you'll develop skills in logic and integrative thinking in addition to communication, writing and research.
So What do Colleges Want? • Currently Colleges are not expressing a preference over endorsement type. ***This may change.*** • Colleges are still looking for a well rounded student who has a high likelihood of finishing a degree.
The most competitive students will - • Have high GPA and class rank • Have performed well on standardized assessments like ACT and SAT • Have taken advanced measures classes -honors and advanced placement courses • Will be involved in extra curricular activities including Fine Arts, UIL, and Athletics. • Will be a member of a service organization and will perform community service • Be recognized as a peer leader • And many others…
So where do we go from here? • We are required by the state to have a meeting with every incoming freshman’s guardians. • We will help you tailor a graduation plan for you student. • We will try our best to give you quality information so you can make educated choices. • We are developing contingency and fall back plans for our students. • It is important that you pick the best path for your student.
