12) Integrated Studies


This QEP proposal seeks to offer intermediate-level, cross-listed courses, which will give students concise and structured information about two separate fields of study in the one instructional time frame.

  • Degree programs that offer concentrations with integrated courses will allow students to prepare themselves for the broad spectrum of issues they might encounter in their future careers.
  • Students will develop critical thinking skills as they learn to think across disciplines through enriched learning environments.
  • This QEP will address the variations in students’ learning styles and will allow students to have twice the amount of education in half the time by combining two disciplines into one course.
