University of Washington Bothell - School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences
The School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences (IAS) at the University of Washington Bothell provides a rigorous liberal arts education that inspires students to engage creatively and ethically with the concerns of the region and the world. We dedicate ourselves to integrative research and creative practice, innovative and effective pedagogy, and dynamic curricula that prepare students to live and work in environments that are diverse and complex. We recognize, reflect on, and challenge unequal relations of power and privilege. As part of a public university, IAS is dedicated eliminating barriers created by institutional discrimination and building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty and staff committed to teaching and working towards more equitable relations in a multicultural environment.
IAS offers undergraduate and graduate degrees designed for students who want to draw connections across diverse fields of study and to link academic work with real life concerns. IAS students benefit from small classes, accessible faculty, innovative teaching, and collaborative and experiential research and learning opportunities.
