Research Question:

How can the Global Studies program provide meaningful interdisciplinary work for all of its students?

Research Methods:

Surveyed students in one cohort and interviewed students in another.


  1. Students liked the idea of tying curriculum from one course to the next, especially if the English class would help students write papers for Art History;
  2. Students want to see more variety in assignments, particularly joint class projects.


  1. Instructors will work to integrate some assignments in Fall 2011 in the Global Studies program.
