(1) Programs are clusters of courses and/or groupings of teaching and research faculty organized by academic interest.
(2) Interdisciplinary Programs
An interdisciplinary program is one in which the subject matter and faculty expertise is broader than any single discipline, and in which the core curriculum integrates knowledge from multiple fields. This discipline mix is typically reflected in curricula that emphasize upper division course work from several departments or programs and interdepartmental faculty collaboration.
(3) Program Residence
Interdisciplinary programs reside in the college in which the preponderance of instruction is situated. This is determined by the distribution of upper-division credits required by the program, assigned to each college on a pro rata basis.
