MDS 300

One of two required courses, Multidisciplinary Studies (MDS) 300 –Communicating Universally – is the first class you will take once you are admitted into the program.

Developing my IDP [Individual Degree Plan] made me feel in control of my education for the first time. I worked with my advisor, professor, and classmates to develop a path to graduation filled with courses that interest me and will help me while I am still in school and after. The hands-on approach is an excellent model and all college students should have this experience.MDS 300 Student
