  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a degree in interdisciplinary studies?
  • What can I do with a degree in interdisciplinary studies?
Special features of this book include the following:
  • Definitions of major terms by leading scholars of interdisciplinary studies.
  • A background history of how interdisciplinary studies programs emerged.
  • Numerous experiential learning class activities, such as a metaphor top-ten list and a mock trial on interdisciplinary studies.
  • Assignments: personal narrative (intellectual autobiography), autobiographical maps, disciplinary research (mapping), and student portfolios.
  • Chapter objectives, discussion questions, case studies, worksheets, student examples, and much more.
This is a comprehensive guide that allows students to integrate the personal, the educational, and the professional to gain a meaningful understanding of interdisciplinarity fundamentals.
