Interdisciplinary study courses are designed to cross traditional departmental lines and examine subjects from the perspective of two or more academic disciplines. These courses provide opportunities for the student to achieve coherent interpretation of various fields of knowledge as they relate to each other. They also enable students to consider how knowledge may be organized and pursued through traditional disciplines.
By themselves interdisciplinary studies courses do not constitute a major. Students interested in combining more than one discipline into an academic major should see the description of the Special Major in this catalog.
