Multidisciplinary Experience Approved Course List

Curricular Outcome: Ability to function in a multidisciplinary setting.

The multidisciplinary requirement can be met by completing one of the following options:

  • An approved University Core Curriculum Science, Technology and Society course (excluding courses on the College of Science No Count List)
  • An approved research project, internship, or entrepreneurship program project. To gain approval an experience must involve a multidisciplinary approach to examining a problem or issue, preferably involving multidisciplinary teams at the junior level or above. Students wishing to use an experience to meet the Multidisciplinary requirement are required to complete the Experiential Learning Contract process.  
  • An additional major or minor.
    • An additional major or minor must give the student experience in another discipline's approach to examining important problems and issues in that discipline.
    • It must include at least 3 courses not required for the student's major. Such additional majors and minors will be approved by each College of Science department for the satisfaction of the Multidisciplinary requirement.
  • A Science Education degree.
  • An approved Multidisciplinary course.  

Note: Students completing the Statewide General Transfer Core will not meet the Science Technology and Society UCORE outcome and therefore, must complete one of the aforementioned options to complete the Multidisciplinary requirement.
