Interdisciplinary Studies and Other Courses

Interdisciplinary Studies
Interdisciplinary courses are designed to integrate knowledge from several fields in the study of a particular topic. Interdisciplinary courses may involve faculty from several departments, schools and colleges. Where faculty from no more than three academic units are involved in a course, the course is listed in a single department or school or jointly listed in two or three departments and/or schools. Where faculty from more than three units are involved in teaching a course, the course will be administered, in collaboration with the departments, schools and colleges concerned, by the Office of Graduate Studies.
