With economies becoming increasingly global, more opportunities are available for those with degrees to expand into new markets, new research and
development, and new teaching roles. The future calls for more cooperation and cross-knowledge. Consequently, new careers are being developed with
broader, interdisciplinary understandings. Due to this shift of focus, interdisciplinary degrees will play an increasing role in tomorrow's world.

educational disciplines not defined within the generic academic offerings
