Humanities + Sciences: Upper Division Interdisciplinary Studios (UDIST)
Upper Division Interdisciplinary Studio (UDIST) courses offer opportunities for undergraduate students and instructors to generate interdisciplinary theories, practices, and works within a studio-based format.
This required part of the undergraduate curriculum is designed to support the strategic goals and values of the college, including cultivating diversity, engaging within the community, fostering excellence, and working toward sustainability.
Interdisciplinary studios cross disciplines in technique, approach, and content; they also emphasize collaborative learning opportunities. Ultimately, the courses offer opportunities for students from different majors to engage with novel themes and/or approaches to making outside the bounds of their own medium.
Students are eligible to enroll in UDIST courses from their third year onwards, allowing them to work in an interdisciplinary manner with peers from other programs at the point when they have developed media and disciplinary expertise in their respective majors.
The UDIST program draws on faculty from all divisions, running approximately 10 UDIST courses each semester.
