The Interdisciplinary Studies Program offers students an opportunity to integrate the various aspects of their liberal arts education through the study of problems and topics too broad to be addressed fully by any one discipline. The Interdisciplinary Studies Program fosters the goals of a liberal arts education, as it promotes mastery of many disciplinary perspectives, a greater appreciation of the differences and similarities between the disciplines, and the integration of these diverse perspectives into a more holistic framework.
Breadth of Knowledge
The Interdisciplinary Studies Program develops the critical ability needed to solve many contemporary problems, and prepares students for a variety of professional careers which demand breadth of knowledge and excellent problem-solving skills. The program offers two ways to achieve these goals: First, it offers courses in the core curriculum that fulfill several of the General Education (Core) requirements. Second, the program offers a major in Liberal Studies and minors in African Studies, Black Diaspora Studies, International Studies, Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and Women's Studies, that allows students to pursue a given topic across departmental lines.
