Why take an Integrated Studies course?

Students have the opportunity to explore a central theme from different disciplines; form safe, respectful learning communities; engage with other students in lively discussion seminars, and more ... 

Integrated Studies courses have added benefits: Employers tell us that they seek employees who can think critically about complex issues/problems and get along with diverse people and perspectives.  The student-led seminars provide students with an opportunity to critically examine their own assumptions, be open to other's ways of seeing and knowing, learn to explore a complex issue from multiple perspectives (disciplines), and participate in a diverse community of learners.
