Interdisciplinary Programs in International Studies.
Adams, Jan S.
Problems of an interdisciplinary program in university environments where traditional departments have top-billing are the focus of this paper. General conditions that exert a drag and positive factors facilitating the development and implementation of an interdisciplinary international studies program are outlined. The status of undergraduate international studies at Ohio State University is reviewed, noting the program's origins and organization. The emphasis of the paper is on the problems of the Center for Undergraduate International Studies. These problems generally result from the attitudes of other departments and faculty towards international studies, the concerns in offering area courses, and the development of the international studies major.
