Interdisciplinary and Non-Departmental Courses

General Description
The following courses which do not fit the disciplinary focus of a single department are available on a regular basis. The purpose of these interdisciplinary, non-departmental courses is to enable students to participate in the sharing of ideas which extend beyond the limits of a single academic department and which emphasize the interdependence of all academic disciplines.

In addition to the courses that follow, the College offers other interdisciplinary courses which are of a more experimental nature and tend to be proposed and offered for one term only. This is especially true of interdisciplinary courses designed for January Term. A list of these can be found in the schedule of courses available at registration for each term.

The Interdisciplinary Studies Committee, ISC, oversees these courses. For more information, contact Amy Forster Rothbart, forsterrotha@hartwick.edu, Chair, Interdisciplinary Studies Committee.
