Interdisciplinary Studies (INTS)

Program Director: Dr. Donna Akers

The Interdisciplinary Studies Program is based on the theme of Social Justice, which views all research and learning as happening within a context of social relations. Issues and problems that face the world today take place in the context of interactions between individuals, groups, nations and institutions where power, privileges and resources are unevenly distributed. Exploring the concepts of social justice are essential to understanding social, environmental, political and technological changes in the past, present and future.
