Interdisciplinary Programs

What sets The University of Tulsa apart is our ability to personalize each student’s educational experience. Our goal is to prepare students to go out into the world with the tools they need to pursue their passions.

TU offers majors, minors, concentrations within majors and certificate programs to round out students’ academic interests. Recognizing learning also happens outside the classroom, we offer opportunities to connect our students with real-world experiences through internships and study abroad.

Here’s a look at some of the programs helping students realize their full potential.
