Degrees and Programs

Our degrees are interdisciplinary and intersectional in how they approach the world. Interdisciplinary combines two or more fields into one discipline to cross boundaries and bridge gaps between traditional methods, thoughts, and fields. Intersectionality refers to the way your experience in the world is shaped by gender, race, class, ethnicity, nationality, sexuality, ability, and age. Interdisciplinary student scholars are creative innovators that form their own fields to meet the needs of a changing society.
Our degrees and programs will prepare you to become a lifelong change agent by:
  • challenging you to question social constructs and grow as an individual
  • sharpening your critical thinking skills
  • uncovering the ways in which the world works
  • offering you the tools you need to create deep, systematic change in the world
