I know that Penn has a policy of interdisciplinary study. Does northwestern have this as well? What other schools have this?
Thanks

    What do you mean? NU is a premier institution in cross-disciplinary programs, such as the Kaplan Humanities Institute, the Cognitive Science Program, etc.

    What I mean is: is it possible to take classes in a different school?
    For example, at Penn students can take classes that are not in their respective schools/majors.

    Don't the majority of schools allow people to take classes in different schools, with the exception of if that class was full with people from the school?

    rocnation951,

    Like arbiter said, NU is one of the premier schools in cross-disciplinary programs. It's not a coincidence that NU is the birthplace of material sciences, a multidisciplinary field. NU also has MMSS and ISP and even though they were created in the 70s, they are still unique these days and are highly regarded by many employers and grad schools.

    Also, the quarter system generally allows you to take more courses, making it easier to double-major, add certificates, or even triple-major.
