Jake Landean Headshot

Jake Landean ‘22 (Cross-Disciplinary Studies) combined his love of Business, Religion and Philosophy, and Social Sciences.

“I love the variety of classes I got to take! For example, Organizational Leadership helped me become more of a leader in the workplace. For Religion and Philosophy, I took Intro to Christian Theology (taught by Dr. McPherson) and that taught me more about the diverse range of opinions about God and Christianity I never knew about before. In Social Sciences, I took Ethnic and Social Diversity, and I loved learning about the differences between Hispanic and Latino cultures.”

How Does This Work?

First, you'll select a minor from our rich array of options. Then, you’ll pick two different areas of study, such as Business, Computer Science, Education, Visual Arts, and more.

Whether you draw from three distinct fields or study three facets of the same topic, you’ll build upon a foundation of Christian faith.

You’ll cap off your experience with the Senior Integrative Project. This capstone project helps you look back on the three areas of study, reflect on your personal journey, and how your studies have complemented each other.

At Roberts Wesleyan University, your education isn't just a series of courses; it's a tailored experience. Go all in to chart your own course and follow your one-of-a-kind calling.
