The programs within the Interdisciplinary Studies Department (ISD) share a commitment to interdisciplinary learning and scholarship. The ISD offers a Bachelor of Arts in African & African Diaspora Studies; minors in African & African American Studies, American Studies, Asian Studies, Gender & Women’s Studies, Latin American Studies, Peace Studies, and Religious Studies; and a Master of Arts in American Studies. Environmental Studies faculty is affiliated with the department. The programs prepare students for a wide range of careers such as museum curators, diplomats, educators, business managers, directors of cultural and aide institutions, and managers of natural resources. In addition, they lay the foundation for professional and graduate schools, such as law school, seminary, public-policy school, and graduate work in most of the social sciences or humanities. Our students practice skills suited to cross-cultural interactions and are involved in hands-on projects in communities, local and abroad.
