IDS at Douglas

Transfer Up to 75 Community College Credits 

The Interdisciplinary Studies Program is pleased to announce that as of Fall 2022, students transferring to any University of Arizona location to pursue a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) degree can apply up to 75 units from a community college to their degree plan.

This signals a shift from the previous limit of 64 community college credits that could be applied to this bachelor’s degree. There will be no alteration regarding the regulations and practices in evaluating the transferability of credits to the University. This credit limit amendment allows more transferrable credits to be applied directly in pursuit of the bachelor’s degree. The College of Humanities and Interdisciplinary Studies Program sought this increase to help fulfill the land-grant mission of the University of Arizona by providing an opportunity for a diverse segment of our student population, including many who transfer from Arizona community colleges, to complete their college degree in a timely manner. 

If you have questions about the application of transfer credits to your BIS degree plan, please reach out to your academic advisor. 

Graduate with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Arizona without ever leaving the Douglas area.

The University of Arizona Near You Network and College of Humanities are proud to offer the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) at our Douglas location as an exciting option and industry-relevant path in higher learning.

Degree Overview and Theme Options

Your associate degree plus 60 additional units of Interdisciplinary Studies coursework earns you a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) degree from the University of Arizona. The Interdisciplinary Studies degree was created in 2010 by a committee of faculty members from across the University of Arizona. They designed the degree as a broad, multidisciplinary course of study rather than a traditional major. The degree provides students with a flexible yet structured program covering a broad range of interests and disciplines. 

The IDS program at Douglas offers courses in three different degree plans:

  1. Science, Technology, Health, and Society
  2. Economy and Industry
  3. Social Behavior and Human Understandinng

You will support your studies in the degree path of your choice by taking courses in 3 different concentrations, with 9 units required in each. The majority of your courses are in the degree plan that you choose, with 36 units required. These three themed options deliver courses from disciplines across the social sciences, natural science, and humanities. While focusing on one of the themes, you will develop skills in oral and written communication, critical analysis and research, and learn to think about and solve 3 problems using multiple theories and methods—obtaining a truly multidisciplinary education. You can also chose Studies of the U.S. and the American Experience, Global and Intercultural Understanding, or Arts, Media and Entertainment as a theme for one of your concentrations.

The Douglas interdisciplinary degree completion program also encourages you to get real world experience in your chosen area and participate in an internship. Studies have demonstrated the importance of internships in post-graduation employment success. The National Association of Colleges and Employers found that “65% of paid interns in the class of 2012 had at least one job offer when they graduated. Of those who did no internship only about 40% had an offer.” And the 2012 Maguire Associates survey concluded that “More important than where they went to college, the major they pursued, and even their grade point average, an internship is the single more important credential for college graduates.” The 2014 Maguire Survey reaffirmed the importance of internships, but also found that employers emphasize communication, critical thinking and problem solving skills – the key assets of a liberal arts education.

Our IDS program graduates have found employment in diverse fields such as: 

  • Advertising
  • Sales
  • Government
  • Media
  • Entertainment
  • Non-profit Organizations
  • Public Relations
  • Marketing
  • Law enforcement
  • Health Care

Other IDS graduates have gone onto to pursue graduate degrees in areas such as:

  • Media arts
  • Nursing
  • Museum studies
  • Social sciences, such as Anthropology or Political Science
  • Humanities, such as Philosophy
  • Law school
  • Social work
  • Medical school

Once you have been admitted as a Wildcat, you will work with advisors at Douglas and in the College of Humanities at UA to chart your path to success.

HUMS 395  Burdens of Proof: History of Forensic Medicine (SBHU/STHS)
Instructor: Victoria Meyer
Hybrid; Regular Semester
Monday 4-6:15pm (primarily taught out of Chandler; ITV other locations)

The intersection of medicine and the law is vast and multi-dimensional since they both revolve around the human experience and the individual versus society. Both elite physicians and popular healers have been involved in with legal systems in an official capacity for millennia, but their roles and the nature of their involvement has varied widely. Just as the nature of legal and disciplinary systems have fluctuated through time and place. The professional treatment of disease (medicine) and the law are both systems that reflect the societies in which they overlap. This means that we can see both continuities and change over time and between societies. In this course, we will focus on the facets of this relationship in the West: Western Europe and North America.  In our focus on the emergence of forensic medicine—an area of medical practice and theory that provides guidance in the operation of the law—we will explore the different forms of legal medicine in Western history. This involves looking at different communities of medical practitioners as they operated in different systems of governance and justice—both assisting and complicating understandings of the law. We will focus in particular on how, why, and to what ends investigators inspected the human body. We will also explore forensic science, though as it historically becomes increasingly distinct from medicine we will look mainly at specifically medical subfields like forensic pathology and toxicology. Throughout, however, we will take a broad view of what counts as legal medicine. We will be reading a number of key secondary texts on the topic, as well as reading through primary source documents such as court records, political treatises, popular literature, medical books, and newspapers.

IDS 396 Industrial Revolutions: Past & Present (SBHU/ECI)
Instructor: Victoria Meyer
Hybrid; Regular Semester>
Wednesday 4-6:15pm (primarily taught out of Chandler; ITV other locations)

Much discontent and conflict in modern times is related to economic status and differences, between groups within societies and between nations. As we try to address contemporary economic struggles and predict the next industrial revolution, we can look to the past to answer why there are such differences. We can begin to understand the roots of our modern economies and structure of daily life through a case study on the first major industrial revolution in Britain of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This semester we will explore the history of the British industrial revolution in an increasingly global age with the rapid expansion of empire. We will explore not only what happened, but also historiographical debates about why it happened when it did and where it did. We will also seek to understand the social impact of the industrial revolution and how different groups, from young and old to rural and urban to women and men, experience the industrial and technological transformations. We will explore such themes as urbanization and mechanization, population growth, foreign markets and empire, consumerism and enlightened culture, and child labor. We will then compare this to case studies from the second industrial revolution which began circa the 1870s and revolved around the impact of gasoline and the third revolution which began in the 1950s and revolved around electronics and nuclear energy.

IDS 496 Voices of the Borderlands (SBHU/GIU)
Instructor: Abraham Villarreal
Regular Semester
Tuesday/Thursday 4:30-5:45pm (primarily taught out of Douglas; ITV other locations)

The course exposes the voices and narratives of people living in the southwest borderland area of the U.S.-Mexico border during the 21st century. Students will examine how we use stories to share the human condition and our histories, which serve to establish our cultural identities. Short stories, personal narratives, and poetry will be reviewed as inspiration on how students can develop their own voices in expressing identity, struggles, hopes, and dreams through writing. The course will include guest speakers from the borderlands who will share the work they do in supporting migrant communities in Sonora, Mexico. Optional, volunteer opportunities will be presented as an avenue for students to experience hands-on activities that will strengthen their communication skills through reflective and narrative writing about their new experiences. Each student will develop their own “Voice of the Borderland” narrative that will be exhibited at the Mexican Consulate office in Douglas, Arizona.

HUMS 378 Playing Doctor: Images of Medicine and Health in film (AMENT/STHS)
Instructor: Victoria Meyer
7 week 2
Tuesday/Thursday 4-5:30pm (primarily taught out of Chandler)

In this course, we will examine how different aspects of health, illness, patients, and medical practitioners have been portrayed in film. Our aim is to explore what we can learn about how different societies in different time periods have viewed disease and the medical field.  We will also explore how can we use film as documents, both primary and secondary, to understand medicine and society more broadly in the past. This requires awareness of the historical context of the films themselves. We will ask what different definitions of "disease" or public health have existed and been used in film.  How have some aspects of the medical profession or certain illnesses been portrayed and why?  How has film been used as a tool of rhetoric and how has film influenced our understandings of medicine and even our own bodies? We will also compare other "images" of health and medicine in both art and in literature.

HUMS 495 Issues in Death, Dying, and Grief (SBHU/STHS)
Instructor: Victoria Meyer
Regular Semester
Monday/Weds 3:30-4:45pm (primarily taught out of North Valley; ITV other locations)

Death comes to us all making it one of the few universal human experiences. Yet, death, dying and bereavement take place in different socio-cultural, interpersonal, and individual contexts. Humans respond to death in different ways and all religious and philosophical traditions attempt to come to grips with it. In this course, we will explore these diverse perspectives and practices through an interdisciplinary analysis. We will discuss Western traditions and modern viewpoints and approaches, as well as global customs and beliefs of death and mourning.  Students will explore their own perspectives of loss and gain understanding of how their perspective impacts their response to others. Specific topics will include cultural and medical factors shaping a “good death”; funeral practices; imagery of death; trauma and death; understandings of the afterlife; legal and ethical debates; suicide and euthanasia.


HUMS 496 Technology and Social Progress (STHS/ECI)
Instructor: Seth Rachlin
7 week 1
Tuesday/Thursday 5-6:30pm (primarily taught out of Chandler; ITV other locations)

For many, technology and social progress are highly correlated, if not synonymous. The salutary impact of technology is indisputable. But with technological advancement comes consequences in the form of new economic, social and political risks – economists call them externalities -- which are often significant and typically born unequally by individuals and groups in modern societies. Policies, programs and contractual schemes to address such risks, the joint province of government and the private sector, usually significantly trail their emergence. In this course, we will apply an institutionalist perspective to the specific case of information technology and its disruptive impact on economy, culture, and politics. We will study the “gig economy” and the challenge of providing the protections of a social safety net to a world of freelancers. We will consider the erosion of traditional notions of objectivity and institutional authority brought about by the “democratization of information” enabled by social media. We will explore the new face of cyber warfare in which nations and non-state actors challenge one another with bytes as well as bombs. And ultimately, we will ask what the monopolies of the new Gilded Age of Big Tech mean for the freedom of citizens and the future of democracy. Should we act now to redirect the path we are on? Can we?

Academic Advising

Our academic advisors in the College of Humanities BGS Advising Center, as well as the Coordinator at Douglas, will help you plan your course of study.

Make an Appointment

The Academic Advising Center hours of operation are Monday–Friday 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. You can schedule an appointment to meet with Daniel Gonzales in 2 ways:

Call the main number. Call 520-621-7763 and ask to speak with an IDS advisor for Distance.  This is the quickest way to schedule an appointment.

Email an advisor to set up an appointment. Advisors will not be able to answer your email immediately, so you must allow for a delay in scheduling an appointment.

Financial Aid Coordinator

If you have a question specifically about financial aid, please contact Michelle Meninger. Michelle will be able to assist you with questions and help you interact with the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid in Tucson.  Please make an appointment with her through the Trellis system: click on her name and you will see instructions. This will be quicker and easier than emailing her, which can lead to a delayed response.
