Selected Interdisciplinary Syllabi
This AIS link includes sample interdisciplinary syllabi and other course materials. It is intended to be useful to faculty and administrators who are new to interdisciplinary studies as well as to experienced interdisciplinarians.
Courses presented on this site have been peer reviewed by a selection committee of the Association for Interdisciplinary Studies, using criteria embedded in Klein and Newell's definition of interdisciplinarity (Handbook of the Undergraduate Curriculum, 1997): courses
–"Address a topic that is too broad or complex to be dealt with adequately by a single discipline or profession"
–"Draw on different disciplinary perspectives"
–"Integrate their insights through construction of a more comprehensive perspective"
Note: In cases where faculty have a course website, a link is to their page, changing as the course evolves and linking to other useful course materials. In cases where faculty do not use a course website or where they post within course management software, materials are housed directly on the AIS site.
Course materials accessed through this website may be copied for educational purposes only. If you use or modify these materials, please give appropriate acknowledgment.
