You may still wonder: What is a PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies? "Interdisciplinary" simply means relating to more than one branch of study, such as anthropology and history combined. One field within interdisciplinary studies is gender studies, which usually focuses on removing bias from other areas of research when it comes to gender. Other research areas deal with maintaining ethical practices in accordance with different international laws.

Within interdisciplinary studies, you may learn problem-solving skills, communication and organization. Organization and problem-solving skills can help you save time in your daily activities. Good communication is useful for a variety of social situations.

The full cost of a PhD is spread across many years, so you need to budget accordingly. If you are moving, factor in those costs as well as lodging and food. Other expenses should include books, course fees and tuition.

In general, an interdisciplinary studies degree can open the door to any career. You may want to start by looking at research positions in one of the fields you studied. Research job titles to consider include analytic methodologist and experiential researcher. In academia, you can look for titles such as adjunct faculty and associate professor in your chosen field. If you are qualified, psychology could also be a possible career path.
