Interdisciplinary Courses within QuEST

Interdisciplinary (ID) courses provide areas of integrated learning in which students wrestle with and address complex questions that face our society, and are woven throughout the curriculum. Throughout their QuEST, students will be challenged to answer these questions by examining different perspectives, theories, and experiences in order to arrive at a more discerning conclusion.  

Students cultivate adeptness in navigating complexity and thinking holistically about these issues in order to reflect upon their own beliefs, as well as bridge values and assumptions of diverse perspectives.  In turn, students are empowered to respond to unexpected and ever-changing realities they will encounter in life, work and society.
