Welcome

The Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies (IIS) is the home of six interdisciplinary programs of study: Child Studies (CHST), Human Rights (HUMR), Directed Interdisciplinary Studies (DIST) (which is a program that allows you to design your own degree), and Minors in:  Disability Studies (DBST), Latin American and Caribbean Studies (LACS) and Sexuality Studies (SXST).  We also offer two first year courses in South Asian Studies (SAST).  IIS brings together faculty and students from across the campus who share research interests that cut across traditional disciplinary boundaries, in the arts, social and natural sciences.
