Many students are choosing interdisciplinary degrees as a way to explore and study multiple interests or one area of interest from multiple perspectives and often apply that learning in new and unique ways. Students love how the new Introduction to Integrative Studies text provides a foundation for learning in an interdisciplinary program!

Introduction to Integrative Studies is not your standard textbook. Many students enjoy the personal and conversational tone of the text. Dr. Tanner uses examples from his own career throughout the book.

By using examples from his life Dr. Tanner demonstrates through the written word topics discussed which helps provide a clearer understanding of included concepts. The text explicitly aims at helping students understand how interdisciplinary and integrative thinking can play an important role in how one interacts within their context.

Introduction to Integrative Studies, written by an interdisciplinarian, is an entry level textbook for students enrolled in an interdisciplinary degree program that may have an emphasis on integrative learning. Written in an easy to read conversational tone, the text provides an overview of the basic concepts related to interdisciplinary and integrative studies. The author shares many personal stories and provides examples of interdisciplinary research, integrative learning, and how others are applying the principles and concepts in unique ways.

 Instructors adopting this text will love the four part layout and ease of using each chapter as lessons during a 15 or 16 week term. The material can easily be adjusted for a four week summer term. Each chapter also includes opportunities for student to check their learning or explore other opportunities for active learning.
