Integrated Studies is a pioneering program in liberal arts education, designed to explore an era or an aspect of world civilization from the perspective of several disciplines. The program is supported by grants from the Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Foundation of New York. The Integrated Studies semester provides an opportunity for students to learn about a subject in depth and to make broad connections between disciplines that will help reveal the essential unity of human knowledge and experience.
Clusters of courses from several disciplines are offered for first-year students and for advanced students. First-year students who elect to take one of the integrated studies clusters will enroll in all courses listed in that cluster and will receive credit toward the appropriate area requirements. The courses, which have no prerequisites, are described below and cross-listed in their respective departmental sections of this catalogue. Each course is offered for four credit hours. Enrollment in each first-year cluster is limited to 20 students.
Advanced clusters typically involve two integrated courses from different departments or programs and are aimed at sophomores, juniors and seniors. Students may elect to take either course in an advanced cluster or both. Advanced cluster course descriptions will be found in the relevant department or program section and are cross-listed below.
In 2000-2001 the program will offer five or six first-year clusters and two advanced clusters.
