We think this is pretty straightforward: complex, real-world problems are interdisciplinary - their solutions will not come from one subject or specialism alone - so our curriculum should be too.
When it comes to making the case for interdisciplinary learning in schools however, we have to consider seriously the many other competing demands on schools’ time. When so much effort is required to help students master the so-called basics, why complicate matters by trying to bring different subjects together?
We know just how difficult it is to create interdisciplinary units - and to timetable them. We’ve therefore made this a core part of our mission; we want to help schools find the space and opportunities for this sort of interdisciplinary learning. We think it matters.
"I really enjoyed the talk and made me realise that I could do a degree that holds more than one subjects. I was actually wanting to find a place like this and I feel I have found it."
"We found it really fascinating and an invaluable experience for our students."
