What is Interdisciplinarity?

Interdisciplinarity is an approach to understanding, problem-solving, and creative production that involves synthesizing insights derived from perspectives, concepts, theories, and methods from multiple disciplines (fields of study).

Interdisciplinary thinking offers an effective problem-solving and creative approach for professionals ranging from scientists, artists, and social theorists to entrepreneurs, educators and community organizers.
