Combine disciplines to pursue your own specialized and pre-professional interests. The social science interdisciplinary program is flexible so students develop research skills, refined communication abilities, team project experience, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, a broad scope of knowledge and global perspectives, and creative approaches to complex problems.
The ISS program operates under procedures adopted by an advisory committee composed of the chairs of the participating departments. Six departments from the College of Social Sciences and two from the College of Arts and Sciences make up the program. The departments of Anthropology and History are from the College of Arts and Sciences. Economics, Geography, Political Science, Public Administration, Sociology, and Urban and Regional Planning, are from the College of Social Sciences.
