Interdisciplinary Studies

Preparing for the future requires problem solving that goes beyond prefabricated compartments. While courses within academic departments pursue inquiry within traditional categories of expertise, interdisciplinary studies (IDS) courses offer the exciting challenge of integrating knowledge using multiple disciplinary perspectives.

Hope’s Interdisciplinary Studies program includes courses which fulfill the following general education requirements:

  • First Year Seminar
  • Cultural Heritage
  • Senior Seminar

These requirements are explained in further detail on the Degree Program  page.
