Transdisciplinary Program

Solutions to today's complex problems require successful collaboration across disciplines. Claremont Graduate University's Transdisciplinary Studies Program is a three-pronged approach that enables students to draw upon the ideas and methods of multiple disciplines and use them to create new, integrative, and transformative solutions.

 Letter from the Interim Director:

We recognize the global demand for our graduates to think across disciplines and other knowledge boundaries. We acknowledge the growing expectation for flexible thinkers and problem solvers who have skills that transfer readily across academic disciplines as well as across sectors of employment.

Transdisciplinarity is a way of thinking and doing. Researchers must be free to follow a problem across disciplinary boundaries; they must be open to collaboration and innovation, drawing on the concepts and methods of other disciplines and creating new approaches to problems; and they must always ask how their creation of knowledge impacts our understanding of humanity's most thorny problems.

--Patricia Easton, Interim Director
