Interdisciplinary Programs

An interdisciplinary program draws upon multiple departments and programs to constitute its area of study and its curriculum.  Most interdisciplinary programs offer only a minor, but a few offer a major. Each interdisciplinary program has a program head and both core and affiliate faculty from multiple disciplines who teach and advise in that program.

The current programs are:

Africana Studies (AFCA)  

East Asian Studies (EAS)  

Education Studies (EDUC)  

Environmental Studies (ENV)  

Latin American and Caribbean Studies (LACS)  

Law, Justice, and Society (LJS)  

Medieval and Renaissance Studies (MRST)  

Middle East and South Asia Studies (MESA)  

Neuroscience (NEUR)  

Poverty and Human Capability Studies (POV)  

Russian Area Studies (RAS, RUSS)  

Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS)  

Students may also pursue INTR 493 - Interdisciplinary Honors  work, with special permission from the faculty’s Committee on Courses and Degrees.
