Our interdisciplinary Minor emphasizes the need for communication across all disciplines in the Arts and Sciences. This flexible programme is designed to complement a student's Specialization, Major, or Honours. The programme consists of 24 credits.
During its first nine years of existence, the College offered a single program known as the Minor in Diversity and the Contemporary World. Currently the College offers several interdisciplinary courses taught on the Loyola campus as part of the original Minor. The scholarly content of these courses is concerned with the advantages and problems raised by variability in fundamental aspects of nature, human functioning and human experience. These courses deal with variations in basic processes such as communication and human development across cultural contexts as well as with the importance of understanding the intersection between biodiversity and human behavior. The Minor recognizes the increasing global importance of inter-cultural contact in multiple aspects of life and the need for an appreciation for complex associations between diversity in nature and human life. The Minor has been increasingly popular. It currently has as many students as other comparable College-based programs in the Faculty and it attracts students from all of the university’s Faculties.
