Interdisciplinary Courses

All baccalaureate students are required to complete one interdisciplinary liberal arts and sciences course.

Interdisciplinary study focuses on questions, problems, and topics too complex or too broad for a single discipline or field to encompass adequately; such studies thrive on drawing connections between seemingly exclusive domains. To be considered an interdisciplinary course at City Tech, the course must be team-taught by more than one faculty member from two or more departments in the College (exceptions are made for departments that provide a home for multiple disciplines, such as Humanities and Social Science).

Since not every section of a class that might qualify for the interdisciplinary designation in a semester will fit all the criteria, please be careful that the section you register for is listed as "ID." To count toward the interdisciplinary requirement, the course number must end in the letters “ID,” as in PHIL 2203ID and ENG 1161ID or be one of the approved ePermit options for the semester in which you take it.

Below is a list, by semester, of sections that qualify. To refer to a list of ID courses and section numbers from past semester, please refer to the archive page.
