Interdisciplinary studies student Emily Lemons assisted in organizing a Death Cafe in December 2013, an event designed to create a safe atmosphere to discuss a culturally forbidden topic.
In the self-designed concentration, you design your own degree, working closely with department faculty. You will plan a focused degree of your own definition that creates one to three integrated areas of study according to your interests, utilizes transfer credit and takes advantage of credit from prior learning.
Through reflection, research, writing and application, the concentration offers benefits to you in three areas:
- Gaining experience in defining a major goal and working systematically to attain it
- Learning from the rich disciplinary traditions that are directly relevant to your goals
- Learning techniques for interdisciplinary scholarship, an approach that examines issues from multiple points of view and the relationships between different ways of knowing
