Integrated Courses
Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary courses have become common practice with many colleges and universities across the nation. This integrated approach differs from a traditional model where a course is taught alone as a discipline, for instance, as a history course, an English course, or a mathematics course. However, with integrated courses being multi- or interdisciplinary, the focus is on a central topic with different academic perspectives addressing relevant issues. For example professors from different departments—such as History, English, or Sociology—can teach sections of a class. Or a professor might team with an expert from industry and business to offer varying viewpoints and solutions to issues. Often guided field trips and on-site activities provide experiences not otherwise available in a traditional classroom setting.

Faculty members can voluntarily design and offer integrated courses as long as they meet the appropriate five competencies. With a multi- or interdisciplinary approach and because a specific topic is explored in detail and from the perspectives of different disciplines such as business, communication studies, and psychology, it hones critical thinking skills. Each integrated course will be 4 credits and will address some or all of the five competencies.
