ELE || Interdisciplinarity & Breadth of Learning
This ELE enables students to integrate learning across departmental and/or disciplinary boundaries. Interdisciplinarity learning fosters innovation and flexibility of thinking and problem solving. Examples include:
- Completing two majors, or a major and a minor in different disciplines
- For students pursuing a major within a professional school, the two majors must be in different schools
- For students pursuing two majors within the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, the two majors must be in different academic divisions
- Completing the Sustainability Certificate
- For students who began the Honors Program on or before Fall 2020: Enrolling in a significant course sequence (at least three courses) outside the area of one's major
Reflection Question: This reflection consists of three parts: For the first paragraph, please summarize concisely what you did and the activity(ies) time commitment(s). Next, tell us about a specific time your thinking was flexible or your problem-solving was enhanced thanks to this interdisciplinary experience. What is the value of interdisciplinarity in addressing issues that matter? Finally, tie your experience back to your education: how has this experience shaped your learning?
Note: In order to maintain relevance and significance, your reflection should be submitted within one semester of the completion of the ELE.
