The Interdisciplinary Study of the Humanities and Sciences Concentration (ISHS)

The Interdisciplinary Study of the Humanities and Sciences (ISHS) is an 18-hour concentration that invites students from any academic discipline to investigate topics in humanities and sciences from a variety of perspectives. It engages with historical, philosophical, ethical, cultural, and representational aspects of scientific and mathematical investigation. It also examines social formations, cultural objects and practices, texts, and discourses from empirical and experimental perspectives. Students will engage with these issues, questions, and perspectives both collaboratively and individually. In doing so, they will develop and articulate their understanding of how scientific inquiry, mathematical reasoning, and humanistic analysis and interpretation relate to one another. Students who successfully complete the concentration in ISHS will be able to articulate a complex, nuanced, reflective, and informed understanding of the way the sciences and humanities interrelate.
