The College of Interdisciplinary Studies offers students a wealth of educational resources and options for pursuing their dreams. These opportunities are represented in the departmental partnerships and collaborations both on the main TTU campus in Cookeville, with our community college partners, and with agencies and municipalities throughout the region and state.

We are home to a wide range of cutting-edge, in-demand degrees and concentrations for Undergraduate, Master’s and Ph.D. students offered through the college’s three schools of study: the School of Environmental Studies, the School of Interdisciplinary Studies and the School of Professional Studies.

Our accredited degree programs prepare students with the course knowledge and adaptive skills to compete, excel and lead in a world of fast-paced, business, professional and environmental fields. Degree options include a symbiosis of on-campus and online courses; some degrees/concentrations are offered online only.
