Interdisciplinary Colloquium Program
Each Interdisciplinary Colloquium is a course team-taught across two Core Areas of Understanding by faculty members from two different departments. These courses offer dynamic opportunities for teaching and learning as well as a distinct curricular advantage.
Students completing an Interdisciplinary Colloquium will fulfill the requirements for two Areas of Understanding at once and thereby make room for a Core elective. The latter may be fulfilled either by (1) taking a Core course in an area of the student’s choosing, or (2) taking a 200-, 300-, or 400-level course outside the student’s primary major. In other words, the number of courses needed to complete the Core Curriculum remains the same, but students completing an Interdisciplinary Colloquium may finish the Core with the aforementioned elective. Students are encouraged to use this Core elective to broaden interests or to fulfill requirements for a minor or even a second major. The Interdisciplinary Colloquium is not a new Core requirement. Rather it is an option, one that interested students would ideally take in the second semester of the sophomore year.
Please note that Interdisciplinary Colloquia with an Natural and Physical Science (NPS) component shall stand in their own Natural and Physical Science category. The provision shall have no impact on the requirement that at least one NPS course must have a lab component.
Please direct any questions or concerns to Dr. Kristi Kneas, Provost and Vice President for for Academic Affairs.
