Perhaps it’s a little cliché, but you’ve been urged to think outside the box, right? To see beyond the obvious. To challenge the ordinary. To think critically and creatively.
Daemen’s Interdisciplinary Program recognizes that many fields of study – and divergent student interests – often do not have exclusive, inflexible boundaries. There is overlap in many academic pursuits – and frequently there should be. Much of scholarship, and the world of work, involves an overlapping of knowledge bases and skill sets. There’s an interconnectedness to so much today, most especially as we aspire to and adopt a more informed, global worldview.
That’s why Daemen College offers and promotes an exciting Interdisciplinary Program that encompasses Cooperative Education, Environmental Studies, Forensic Studies, Individualized Studies, International Studies, and Military Science (ROTC). Our Cooperative Education program, for example, assists in placing students in a wide range of internships – integrating academic studies and field experience. Environmental Studies finds an interesting interdisciplinary approach that melds, for example, a major in History and Government with a specialization in environmental studies.
The college’s Interdisciplinary Program speaks to the crucial need for today’s students to be culturally oriented, professionally trained, and conversant in a rich mix of disciplines, skills and experiences.
That’s the best way to really get a feel for what Daemen is all about! Daemen is located in suburban Amherst, New York just minutes away from the city of Buffalo. To schedule a weekday individual interview and tour the campus, email us firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800.462.7652.
