University Courses at Cornell are designed to teach students to think from the perspectives of multiple disciplines, across departments and among diverse fields of study. University Courses foster intellectual discovery, promote debate, and address complex issues. Students taking University Courses enroll alongside students from across the university and examine engaging subjects through new and different lenses.
Most University Courses are team taught, many by faculty from different departments. The fourteen courses supported by the program in 2013-14 are taught by twenty-five faculty members from nineteen departments. The courses themselves are listed in the following departments and programs:
|Biology and Society||Cognitive Studies|
|Computer Science||Design and Environmental Analysis|
|Earth and Atmospheric Science||Ecology and Evolutionary Biology|
|Human Development||Industrial and Labor Relations|
|Information Science||Molecular Biology and Genetics|
|Music||Neurobiology and Behavior|
|Science and Technology Studies||Sociology|
