Interdisciplinary Studies

While many of King’s courses tackle questions from a range of disciplinary perspectives, the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies gives special prominence to interdisciplinary inquiry and exploration, recognizing that real-world problems rarely conform to comfortable disciplinary boundaries and frequently admit of multiple approaches, perspectives and solutions. Courses in this department seek to foster connections across disciplines, encourage the ability to think through questions from different perspectives and disciplinary lenses, integrate knowledge and synthesize evidence from multiple fields of inquiry (including quantitative, qualitative and interpretive evidence), and develop in students strong written, oral and presentation skills.
