Interdisciplinary Studies

Interdisciplinary Studies combines the study of several subjects into one integrated course or "learning community," usually for ten or more credits. Each IDS course features a theme that forms a common thread across disciplines. The focus of these courses is you. Students learn with each other and from each other by discussing readings in small groups (seminars), taking part in group activities, and, in some courses, by taking field trips. These programs emphasize the process of learning as well as course content. The student centered, discussion-oriented format encourages and supports different points of view and creates a social climate that promotes collaborative learning.
