Interdisciplinary Arts at Providence focuses on Humanities and Social Sciences – those disciplines are at the core of higher education. The subject matter here is people – all human thoughts and actions in life, all human experiences and expressions of life. You will be equipped with a broad understanding of human life, thought and relationships, an awareness of methods topics and trends in Humanities and Social Sciences, and an advanced ability to think analytically, critically and creatively.
Choose one concentration from the Humanities and one from Social Sciences or, if you prefer, replace one concentration with math or science.
