The Center for Interdisciplinary Studies (CIS) promotes interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary teaching at the College and is an integral part of a liberal arts education. The Center’s programs fall into two categories: 1) multidisciplinary academic curricular programs, such as the student-designed multidisciplinary majors and minors program, and the multidisciplinary concentrations; 2) off-campus educational opportunities in Washington, D.C., and the Worcester area, which link learning and living, combining rigorous academic course work with community-based internship opportunities.
