Interdisciplinary Studies


What is Interdisciplinary Studies?

If you’re interested in humanistic topics that cross disciplinary boundaries, Interdisciplinary Studies may be the right major for you. This major includes two concentrations: Jewish Studies and Medieval Studies. Jewish Studies will provide you with knowledge of the Hebrew language, the opportunity to study Yiddish, and a broad appreciation of Jewish religion, culture, and history. Medieval Studies will introduce you to medieval cultures across the world, giving you an understanding of periods and movements, institutions, material culture, and ideas, beliefs, and values of the diverse cultures that comprised the medieval globe. If the humanistic topic you’re interested in isn’t part of this major, consider developing your own major through our Individual Plans of Study program.
