Interdisciplinary studies, like liberal arts or general studies degrees, are comprised of courses from various disciplines rather than one or two specific disciplines. On occasion, these disciplines may be drawn from different faculties (arts and health sciences, for example) as well as different departments within one faculty. The best interdisciplinary programs seek to create new connections between areas of study, rearranging knowledge, thought and methodology into new configurations.
About Interdisciplinary Studies
Interdisciplinary degrees often form the basis for higher study in any number of disciplines. Because of the particular breadth of such a degree, it is most closely related to general arts or liberal arts degrees offered by some universities.
