Interdisciplinary Academic Centers



Connecticut College is home to five interdisciplinary academic centers, each with a different focus: international studies, the environment, arts and technology, public policy and community action, and the study of race and ethnicity. Four of the five centers offer student certificate programs that can be combined with any major.

Certificate students complete specialized coursework, a funded internship and a sophisticated senior integrative project. But the impact of the centers extends far beyond the approximately 12 percent of graduates who earn certificates each year. All five centers sponsor symposia, lectures and other activities that bring together faculty and students from every department.
