INDS 330  Ways of Knowing                                         3 credits

(PermReq) Grade  Method: REG This  course will offer
          students      an      introduction      to
          interdisciplinary  studies. Beginning with
          the  question, Why interdisciplinary?, the
          course will then proceed to an examination
          of   the   history   of  interdisciplinary
          studies   as   an   academic   field,   an
          exploration   of   the   elements  of  the
          disciplines  and  their importance  to the
          interdisciplinary  process,  and, finally,
          an  exploration  of  different  models  of
          integration.  Students will  engage in the
          interdisciplinary  process  as  applied to
          current  complex  problems  and  will also
          have     the    opportunity    to    apply
          interdisciplinary    theories    to    the
          development of their self-designed majors.

INDS 430A Interdisciplinary Studies Seminar : The                 3 credits
          American Entrepreneur in the 21st Century.        

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD The  growth of
          global    telecommunications    and   data
          networks  has made starting  up a business
          faster,   cheaper   and   more  efficient.
          Multi-billion    dollar   companies   like
          Google,  Under Armor, and Starbucks spring
          up  to achieve market dominance, seemingly
          overnight.   This course  will instruct on
          how,  what, when and where  to start a new
          business.  Students will develop skills in
          interdisciplinary   research  and  problem
          solving,     in     oral    and    written
          communication,  and in the analysis of new
          business  challenges  through  fact  based
          analysis  and  documentation.  Through the
          use  of  literature  and  motion pictures,
          students  will review the  history and the
          psychology   of  the  successful  American
          entrepreneur.  Through the use of in depth
          online data sources business premises will
          be  developed,  debated and  documented in
          formats  that  lead to  proposals that are
          tested and ready for financial review.

INDS 430B Interdisciplinary Studies Seminar : Travel              3 credits
          Narratives and the Formation of Global            
          Identity.                                         

(PermReq) Grade     Method:    REG/P-F/AUD    Travel
          narratives  have always been, and continue
          to  be, important sources  of insight into
          the    formation   of   identity   through
          encounters   with   "the   other".  Travel
          narratives  are  works  of  literature  in
          their  own  right.  But  they  also reveal
          important  historical details and cultural
          practices  of  a particular  era, and shed
          light   on   the   inherent  tensions  and
          yearnings  of the  human condition. Travel
          narratives  explore  the  relation between
          particular  or individual experience and a
          plurality  of  cultures.  Finally,  travel
          narratives offer insight into nationalism,
          multiculturalism,             imperialism,
          colonialism,  and the emergence of racial,
          ethnic, and sexual/gender identities. This
          course will examine a selection of western
          and  nonwestern travel  narratives written
          by  male  and  female  travelers  from the
          perspectives   of   several   disciplines,
          including       literature,       history,
          anthropology,  philosophy,  and  political
          science.
