Multidisciplinary Programs

Each multidisciplinary program concentrates on a single problem or series of problems that cannot be approached by one discipline alone. The integration and coherence of the program are achieved through work of ascending levels of complexity. At the present time, Vassar has the following fully developed multidisciplinary programs-Africana Studies; American Studies; Asian Studies; Environmental Studies; International Studies; Jewish Studies; Latin American and Latino/a Studies; Media Studies; Medieval and Renaissance Studies; Science, Technology, and Society; Urban Studies; and Women’s Studies. The regulations and requirements of these programs are specified under course listings.

Fulfillment of distribution requirements for students in a multidisciplinary concentration is determined in consultation with the adviser in the program.
