Human culture, creativity and knowledge are often produced and experienced in the spaces across and between the traditional disciplines. Interdisciplinary minors, which focus on areas of interest rather than established disciplines, afford students an opportunity to examine topics from multiple disciplinary perspectives.
Through these cross-departmental minors, students embark on an ambitious, meaningful learning experience that complements their work in their majors and in the University Curriculum. Students hone critical intellectual skills by evaluating facets of human culture and the natural world from various viewpoints and integrating these insights to form new knowledge and understanding.
The College of Arts and Sciences offers the following interdisciplinary minors:
- Asian Studies
- Global Public Health
- History and Philosophy of Science
