transdisciplinary studies.

<p>what is this trans disciplinary study. What are its benefite.</p>

<p>I think it's usually referred to as 'interdisciplinary studies'. Anyway, it refers to any major that has course requirements in different departments. For example, I believe neurobiology is generally considered interdisciplinary because it requires courses in psychology and biology. And of course psychology and biology would be in different departments. It's my understanding that colleges/universities that offer interdisciplinary studies promote the idea that drawing from different disciplines (/departments) helps one to improve analytical thought because students connect ideas from different disciplines. IMHO it can be a great way to get a science degree, and gain a solid liberal arts foundation at the same time. However, not many (if any) interdisciplinary studies prepare one for a career. You would have to further your education to get a job. That's my 2 cents. Hope it helped :)</p>
