How to approach an inter-disciplinary thesis
Interdisciplinary Studies Field – University California, Berkeley
Whatever discipline or combination of disciplines you choose to follow, your studies will be immersed in a liberal arts atmosphere promoting excellence and virtue in all things. Students who declare Interdisciplinary Studies as their major must meet with the Director of Interdisciplinary Studies to design a major course of study from the various disciplines of study Belmont Abbey College offers. Interdisciplinary Studies majors must then meet with the Director each semester to assess their progress and to schedule the coursework of the following semester. The minor advisor will notify the Registrar when all requirements including successful completion of the integrative paper for the interdisciplinary minor have been satisfied. Robert R. Tad Hixson, Jr. Director of Interdisciplinary Studies B.
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences recognizes that students' academic and professional interests may include more than one discipline and that some majors are not formally available at the university. Because interdisciplinary approaches, research, and curricular activities are becoming increasingly appropriate and valuable within the liberal arts and sciences and other fields, UF students have the option to develop and pursue interdisciplinary IDS majors that cross the boundaries of numerous disciplines. Students must select two tenured or tenure-accruing faculty members who agree to work with them from the planning stages to completion of the thesis research proposal.
Not all courses are offered every semester. Refer to the schedule of courses for each term's specific offerings. More Info.
