Interdisciplinary Programs of Study

The Division of Interdisciplinary Studies is home to a number of ongoing curricular projects created by faculty from diverse divisions, departments, and programs. Interdisciplinary studies at Goucher carry on the tradition of developing, integrating, and synthesizing the perspectives of various disciplines. Areas such as global politics, world peace, intercultural awareness, environmental concerns, advances in science and technology, the growing sophistication in interpretive practices, and the nature and diversity of knowledge and consciousness speak to the need for academic programs that cross, integrate, and transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries. The curricular projects include both the development of completely new disciplines and the meeting of traditional disciplines in new theoretical and practical areas of common intellectual interest.
