Minor in Core Interdisciplinary Studies

The Minor in Core Interdisciplinary Studies offers students the opportunity to explore a topic with an interdisciplinary and global reach. By taking courses in a range of different departments and disciplines, students will be encouraged and enabled to extend and give greater depth to their study of the texts, works of art, music, and key ideas of Western and other cultural traditions treated in Core. Students will also be immersed in the Core learning community by preparing a Capstone project within the context of a one-semester, 2-credit Core workshop (CAS CC 250). The Core minor will prepare students to undertake further innovative research projects that cross disciplinary boundaries, whether in graduate school or the workplace.
