Message From the Dean
The College of Arts & Sciences offers many interdisciplinary programs, each housed outside of particular departments and bringing together faculty from different disciplines. These programs transcend the barriers of traditional, departmentalized scholarship, bridging such fields as literature and cultural studies, psychology and biology, and political science and geography. Areas such as American Studies and Cognitive Science bring together a variety of complementary critical approaches, and in doing so create an academic environment based on shared ideas, interests and values.
These interdisciplinary programs are a prime example of UK’s continued effort to maintain its legacy of research, service and education by finding new methods and attitudes for confronting the world’s problems.
