Instructor: Brolley

This course is intended to introduce students to interdisciplinary thinking: what it is, how it is studied, how we apply it to various questions and problems, and why it is important as a component of rational and ethical human behavior. Students will develop an understanding of traditional academic disciplines and areas, as well as an understanding of the connections and distinctions between disciplinarity, multidisciplinarity, and interdisciplinarity. This knowledge will then be linked to relevant issues encountered in the academic and professional worlds.
