Integrative Studies

Dr. Eve Passerini, Associate Professor

Mixing freedom and rigorous standards, the BA major and minor in Integrative Studies crosses and integrates disciplines, allowing students to design an academic path based on their unique interests, producing majors well equipped to apply information and skills in novel ways to new, complex and pressing questions and challenges. The student, with their advisors, develops a unique degree title and a course of study that does not officially exist at the university, but that can be supported by the university – usually by mixing courses from different disciplines and departments. No matter the subject, students gain skills in integrative thinking, communication, theory, research methods, and broad efficacy of action.
