The Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences (IAS) program is an advanced, interdisciplinary curriculum in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. The Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies offers six areas of concentration: Global Studies; American Studies; Community Psychology; Culture, Literature and the Arts; Society, Ethics and Human Behavior; and Science, Technology and the Environment. Interdisciplinary Studies students develop enhanced skills in critical thinking, writing and oral communication. It is the goal of the faculty to prepare students for lifelong learning and for participation in the challenges of work and citizenship.
The primary goal of the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science degree program is to train a new generation of interdisciplinary scientists who are able to work in both the public and private sectors to address pressing environmental issues that face our society.
The Master of Arts in Policy Studies (MAPS) is designed for people seeking an educational pathway to careers in the public, private or non-profit sectors. Students gain the knowledge, abilities and skills for policy-related careers that can affect positive change in our local and global communities. MAPS alumni engage in social problem solving, democracy building, community development and policy research and management.
