Make a personal connection to your education


Students and faculty participating in the Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) Program build learning communities that integrate teaching and learning across academic disciplines and engage personal, civic, and academic learning objectives in collaborative, supportive, student-centered environments.

Learning communities consists of two or three courses, usually for 10 or more credits, designed and organized around a theme or subject of inquiry that learners investigate through multiple disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and cross-disciplinary perspectives. Courses provide opportunities to connect personal, academic, and civic responsibilities by building critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and analytic skills. Courses may include seminar, discussion, or group projects along with traditional lectures and assignments. Students actively develop course content and direction.

Include a learning community class in your academic schedule! You will not only earn credits in a variety of required courses, you will find yourself in a dynamic and supportive learning environment.
