Integrative Studies (ITGR)
Nancy Daukas, Professor of Philosophy, Interdisciplinary Division Chair
The integrative studies major allows students to design their own interdisciplinary major in a way that integrates several fields and disciplines. Such a major is based on several things: Guilford’s emphasis on the interdisciplinary character of learning; the Quaker recognition of the unique gifts of each person; and the Quaker emphasis on the responsibility of each person in the search for truth.
This major is not for everyone. It requires additional work by both the student and their faculty advisors and is suitable only for self-directed students who are actively involved in their education and able to work well on their own. A student must have a cumulative Guilford G.P.A. of 3.25 or higher in order to apply to the program and it is considered an honor to be accepted to the program.
The Bachelor of Arts degree is offered in integrative studies.
