Advanced Interdisciplinary (ID)

The Advanced Interdisciplinary major presents a unique opportunity for students to combine studies of two liberal arts areas and to develop, in a structured way, the interrelations between these different fields of knowledge.

This program can be a combination of any two of the following areas:

  • Biology
  • Business
  • Computer Science
  • English
  • Fine Arts
  • Mathematics
  • Philosophy
  • Physical Science
  • Psychology
  • Religion

Requirements

The capstone project is a research paper that addresses a topic that relates the two chosen areas and explores the intersections between them. The requirements for this capstone project are more rigorous than those of the other Interdisciplinary programs, and therefore enrollment in the Advanced Interdisciplinary major is limited to only the strongest students. Contact Department Chair Neil Simonetti for information on the requirements to enter this program.
