Interdisciplinary Studies

Discover how to become a future leader and innovator through interdisciplinary studies.

Interdisciplinary programs draw from two or more academic disciplines that work together to create a powerful learning experience emphasizing integrative learning, critical thinking, essential questioning and creative problem solving.

Benefits of Interdisciplinary study:

  • Discover the value of integrating the study of various academic disciplines suited to your life-long learning interests.
  • Embrace new ideas that you couldn’t imagine while studying just one subject in isolation from others.

  • Develop collaboration skills while working with others who have different perspectives on problems than yours.
  • Prepare for graduate and professional study, and for careers in new and emerging fields.
