The Social Science Interdisciplinary major focuses primarily on human institutions and behavior, examining their interplay from the perspective of various disciplines. The social sciences include anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, psychology and sociology. Cutting across these varied disciplines, the interdisciplinary major intentionally trades depth of learning for broader scope of inquiry. By offering more latitude in its curriculum design, it often allows students to pursue less traditional or unique intellectual ventures, particularly those that require the synthesis of multiple disciplines. It also occasionally serves as an undergraduate pathway for graduate programs. The major is not available to those students earning a degree in one of the individual social science disciplines.
