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  

East Asian Studies  

Education Studies  

Environmental Studies  

Latin American and Caribbean Studies  

Law, Justice, and Society  

Medieval and Renaissance Studies  

Middle East and South Asia Studies  


Poverty and Human Capability Studies  

East European and Russian Studies  

Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies  

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