Prof. Peter Wakefield, senior lecturer and director of Undergraduate Studies, believes the IDS major may be one of Emory’s best-kept secrets. Senior Michaela Salvo 11C agrees.
Interdisciplinary Studies in Culture and Society is the only major at Emory University that allows students to structure their own program of study around a field of interests that they themselves define. It is designed for independently minded students who wish to study culture and society but whose interests are broader than those accommodated by a single discipline. As part of the major, students are permitted to take courses in a number of departments, provided they meet appropriate departmental prerequisites.
