Interdisciplinary programs allow students to pull from several areas of knowledge to develop a curriculum that best prepares that student for his or her goals after graduation. Students will work closely with an advisor and faculty members to select appropriate courses to achieve their desired academic goals.

Upon completing an interdisciplinary program of study, students will:

  • Demonstrate reflexive learning: the ability to re-examine material learned in the past and reconsider and/or reevaluate it in the changed context of further learning and experience. 
  • Demonstrate the ability to relate traditional academic learning to external contexts, everyday life, and broader issues and publics through experiential projects and assignments.
  • Demonstrate the ability to understand, interpret, and analyze arguments and evidence in a wide variety of contexts.
  • Demonstrate the ability to illustrate and analyze specific (inter)disciplinary and thematic connections and utilize those connections to apply learning from one particular context to another.
