Integration of Knowledge

9. Integration of Knowledge--The interrelationships between various areas of knowledge are specifically explored, not left to the student to discover by chance.

The Perspectives courses, which are to occur after students have completed English Composition and half of the required core courses, are to incorporate knowledge from two or more academic disciplines. Students are to propose solutions to problems employing the techniques of more than one academic discipline. Although the perception among some faculty is that too few perspectives courses achieve this goal, many students feel that the goal has been met. In a survey in the fall of 1995, students slightly agreed on average (2.50 on a scale where 1= strongly agree and 5 = strongly disagree) with the premise: "Perspectives courses have demonstrated how different areas of knowledge relate and can be used in complementary ways."
