Northern offers students two opportunities to individually create programs: a baccalaureate degree and a certificate.
Interdisciplinary programs are those that are co-sponsored by two or more departments. Generally a student chooses an adviser from one of the sponsoring departments.
Northern offers an interdisciplinary baccalaureate degree program in secondary education integrated science.
Also within the interdisciplinary area are a two-year associate degree in general university studies and a minor program in gender studies.
