Interdisciplinarity creates educational opportunities through combining two or more academic disciplines. Indeed, often boundaries are pushed and new discoveries made at the margins of established field and research methods. Union College recognizes the rich possibilities of interdisciplinary studies by offering many opportunities for both faculty and students to engage with multiple disciplines - and each other - in collaborative classroom settings, innovative majors and unique research initiatives.
Vibrant interdisciplinary studies (IS) can be pursued through a variety of designated degree programs at Union College. Students are able to major and/or minor in our many Interdisciplinary Studies Programs (ISP) in wide ranging topics from Film Studies to Neuroscience.
In addition, we offer the following interdisciplinary courses, listed below.
