INDS 430A Interdisciplinary Studies Seminar                       3 credits
          Complementary Medicine: An                        
          Interdisciplinary Inquiry                         

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/AUD  Complementary and
          alternative     therapies,     such     as
          acupuncture,      naturopathy,      herbal
          treatments,  meditation,  chiropractic and
          therapeutic  massage are  so interwoven in
          the  fabric of American healthcare that it
          may  no  longer  be relevant  to draw firm
          lines     between     complementary    and
          conventional    medicine,    suggests    a
          nationwide   survey   conducted   by   the
          Stanford  Center  for Research  in Disease
          Prevention.  Many  complementary  medicine
          techniques  represent  different  ways  of
          thinking   about   wellness,   health  and
          disease,   which   are  deeply  rooted  in
          distinct   histories,   philosophies   and
          languages.  Health care involves knowledge
          and  practice  in  patient  care, research
          methods  and  basic economic  issues. This
          seminar will explore how complementary and
          alternative   therapies  are  being  used,
          examine questions of efficacy, and explore
          healthcare  policy  responses in  terms of
          research funding and coverage by insurance
          companies.    Students   will   have   the
          opportunity   to   meet   experienced  and
          distinguished  practitioners  of different
          therapies.

INDS 430B Interdisciplinary Studies Seminar Imaging               3 credits
          and Writing the Environment                       

(PermReq) Grade   Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  course
          draws  on  interdisciplinary environmental
          perspectives to understand our interaction
          with  and  impact  upon  non-human nature.
          Structured  as  a  creative  "think tank,"
          students  will  share  and  evaluate their
          research  through group  presentations and
          discussions.  Students  will  apply  their
          discipline-based  skills  to collaborative
          projects    that    could    include   art
          installations, performances, publications,
          and electronic media. This course welcomes
          students   from  the  arts,  sciences  and
          humanities   who  are  interested  in  the
          environment    and    want    to   develop
          collabrative  projects across disciplines.
