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, transdisciplinarity, cross-disciplinarity, and interdisciplinarity. We will consistently connect this knowledge with relevant issues from the academic and professional worlds.
