An Interdisciplinary Approach

Jobs of the 21st century will require an individual to examine issues, problems, and solutions from an interdisciplinary perspective. To prepare for this complexity of today’s global issues, students will have a variety of academic choices that provide both breadth and depth. In Years 1 and 2, students will be able to choose from a variety of principles courses such as Philosophy, History, Sociology, Economics, Business, Politics and International Relations (and others). In Years 3 and 4, students will be able to gain more in-depth content knowledge through specialized courses such as: Modern Political Thought, Transnational Migration, International Bargaining, Development Economics, and Management Science (19 courses are offered). Furthermore, a small-group classroom environment (Faculty-student ratio is 1 to 20) is conducive to active discussions, further developing students’ academic, research, presentation and English communication skills.
Professors will offer their individual perspectives and methods of analysis, resulting in the students’gaining a deeper understanding of different academic disciplines. Tying together the different strands from these fields will weave the fabric of an organized knowledge base. Collaborative learning implemented to induce creative problem-solving methods will lead to the development of analytical thinking and improved communication skills.
