Interdisciplinary Social Sciences (ISS)


Elm Street Walkway

Welcome to the Interdisciplinary Social Sciences Program. Our program provides students with the flexibility to customize a course of study from a range of disciplines. Rather than simply looking at the world through the lens of one discipline, the ISS program encourages students to think in interdisciplinary ways about social issues of global concern. ISS majors gain an understanding of the linkages between social science disciplines and related fields of study, and develop the ability to synthesize the knowledge and tools of these traditional disciplines to examine and analyze social issues in new ways.

Upon completion of the program, ISS graduates are prepared for the holistic problem solving required in the public and private sector (business, government, legal, and non-profit), as well as further study in graduate or professional school in a variety of fields.
