Cross Disciplinary Certificate

Cross-disciplinary uses knowledge, skills and processes from two or more academic, creative or professional disciplines. In this program, students will have opportunities to creatively integrate diverse backgrounds, practices and contexts, build dynamic, multi-faceted portfolios, and cultivate their own entrepreneurial or industry potential. By merging design thinking and creative inquiry with a wide breadth of skills and techniques, students will be able to approach questions, issues and projects with more inclusive, adaptive perspectives, resulting in responsive, dynamic and exciting practices. This program is suitable to individuals from broad fields of expertise, including academics, professionals, artists, designers, scientists, architects, activists, and beyond.
