Enhancing the Baccalaureate Experience
Create a single, interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts degree program in the School of Arts and Sciences.
A single, interdisciplinary B.A. degree program would:
- Establish a distinctive baccalaureate identity for UAS within the UA system.
- Facilitate a truly interdisciplinary (methodologically & theoretically) and transdisciplinary (holistic) curriculum.
- Provide yet another opportunity to integrate decolonization and indigenous knowledge into our academic programs.
- Increase clarity about how an interdisciplinary course of study works.
- Strengthen innovative approaches to social issues and community engagement.
- Provide more opportunities for students to draw directly upon faculty academic and research expertise.
- Provide more flexibility for students to craft a program of study.
- Provide a clear pathway to high impact learning.
- Better incorporate experiential learning and fieldwork opportunities into a student’s degree program.
