2. INT enables students to organize and understand knowledge from multiple fields of studies. The INT curriculum consists of core INT courses, general courses, concentration courses, as well as electives.

Papers, projects, and discussions in relation to Interdisciplinary Studies are each unique in that we all have different concentrations.

Skills taught: critical thinking, problem solving, global awareness, research & writing, and language & communication.

4. Interdisciplinary Studies allows us to be cocreators. This meaning we learn from other disciplines as well as one another. There is a constant learning cycle taking place.

3. Between fields of study. INT is an integration of knowledge, meaning not only studying multiple disciplines, but integrating them.

Through discussion boards we create, share, and respond to the knowledge of our peers.

The integration of globalization, social work, and psychology is used to produce new solutions for helping people.
