What is interdisciplinary teaching?
The University Seminars began in 2008, seeking to build on Tufts' strengths as both a liberal arts college and a research university by bringing together scholars and researchers to work together on challenges facing society. "Complex societal problems, be they domestic or global, cannot be addressed from the perspective of a single discipline anymore," says Provost Jamshed Bharucha. What's needed is to bring experts with strong, rigorous disciplinary training together to address societal problems, which forces them "to learn about each other's perspectives, because you have to if you want to address the problem." The seminars are open to undergraduates upperclassmen and graduate and professional students.
Unlawful discrimination has no place at Tufts University and offends the University’s core values which include a commitment to equal opportunity and inclusion. All Tufts employees, faculty members, students and community members are expected to join with and uphold this commitment.
