Interdisciplinary Studies, Programs and Options
Row 334 - 678-839-6038
The College of Arts and Humanities, The College of Science and Mathematics, and the College of Social Sciences recognize the importance of integrating learning across departmentally housed disciplines. In support of this aim, the Colleges and the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies offer students opportunities to enroll in a variety of interdisciplinary options, including single courses combining more than one discipline and two or more courses from different departments linked together by their focus on common themes as well as major and minor degree programs. IDS and XIDS refer to the cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary nature of courses and programs across the Colleges.
IDS programs include three major degrees: a B.S. ENST in Environmental Studies (Course prefix ENVS), a B.S. ENVS in Environmental Sciences (Course prefix ENVS) and a B.A. in Global Studies (Course prefix GLOB) all housed in the College of Science and Mathematics (Department of Geosciences). They also include minor degree and certificate programs housed in the College of Arts and Humanities: Africana Studies (English Department) , American Studies (History Department), Canadian Studies Certificate (History Department), Film Studies (English Department), and those housed in the College of Social Sciences: Latin American Studies (Anthropology Department) and Women's Studies (Sociology Department). Each of these programs include courses from a range of academic departments and disciplines including from the College of Arts and Humanities, the College of Sciences and Mathematics, and the College of Social Sciences.

XIDS courses are an essential part of the Core Curriculum, as they meet and support University and College learning outcomes required in the Core. XIDS courses can be team-taught or taught by a single professor. The purpose is to offer, through special topics, an integrative learning experience that results in a new and enhanced academic perspective. Three XIDS courses in the Core are templates for creating a variety of new, topic-driven sections. These include in Core Area B2, XIDS 2001 and XIDS 2002 ('What do you really know about…[special topics]?' ); in Area C1, XIDS 2100 (Arts and Ideas Special Topics) and in Core Area E4, XIDS 2300 (Interdisciplinary Studies in the Social Sciences).
