Interdisciplinary courses integrate two or more of the curriculum areas of the General Education program. In content and pedagogy they cross the boundaries of the General Education disciplinary designations; they do not fall entirely outside the defined disciplines. A course which is interdisciplinary across the areas of physical science and social science, for example, will integrate the fundamental theories and methods of both disciplines to investigate the issues raised in the course. A course may involve the disciplines of historical studies, literature and behavioral science to explore a particular theme. Courses such as these would not be appropriately designated in any single curriculum area, but they encompass the principals and theories of General Education.
