Interdisciplinary research and teaching have been at the core of the Center for Science and Society’s mission. In the past five years, the Center has facilitated the development of more than forty cross-disciplinary courses for undergraduate and graduate students, some co-taught by faculty from STEM and non-STEM fields. This spring, we began the next phase of our co-teaching initiative, which will provide grants and other support to increase the number of interdisciplinary co-taught courses at Columbia.
A new course this spring, “Philosophy of Psychology” pairs John Morrison, Associate Professor of Philosophy, and Raphael Gerraty, Presidential Scholar in Society and Neuroscience. Our work-study student Ariana sat down with the creators of the course to discuss their thought process in developing it as well as their experiences co-teaching. Learn more on our website.
