Center for Interdisciplinary Studies

The Center for Interdisciplinary Studies (CIS) provides opportunities for students and faculty to explore topics that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries. Students have the ability to complete a major that is not regularly offered by an academic department or program. Read about the evolution of the CIS and see the CIS Major Application Guidelines section for more details.

The CIS hosts regular Monday lunches at which students present their work-in-progress to CIS majors and advisers, followed by Q-and-A. These lunches are open to all interested faculty.
