Faculty Designed IDPs

IDP offers interdisciplinary majors and minors designed by MSU Denver faculty. Faculty Designed IDPs provide faculty members the opportunity to develop new academic programs to meet emerging needs in the community and workplace. The IDP-as-incubator allows faculty to track demand and to experiment with curriculum before submitting the new program for review through the curriculum approval process.

We also house Faculty Designed IDPs that do not easily fit within one department including the International Studies Concentration, Aerospace Systems Engineering Technology (ASET), and Aerospace Physics.

If you are a faculty member and interested in designing a new Faculty Designed IDP, please contact the CIL Director, Sara Jackson Shumate, Ph.D.
