Interdisciplinary studies courses emphasize the interconnections between academic disciplines and enrich inquiry by offering analysis from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Some courses are created among a few related departments. Others develop around a College-wide theme or interest. Integrative minors, concentrations and course clusters offer experiences in connected learning. Special programs which offer an interdisciplinary focus include College Scholars; East Asian Studies; Environmental Studies; Gender and Women's Studies; the History of Ideas; International Business; Global Studies; Interactive Media Studies; Leadership, Ethics and Values; and Urban and Suburban Studies. Course descriptions and requirements for interdisciplinary academic majors or minors are listed under the program titles to which they apply. Individualized majors with an interdisciplinary emphasis are reviewed by the Director of Integrative Programs. The director is also available to assist in identifying special on- and off-campus opportunities for interdisciplinary work at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
