Interdisciplinary and Distribution

Non-divisional: Most courses with interdisciplinary subject codes, such as those with the subject code "COGS" (Cognitive Science), or "PEAC" (Peace and Conflict Studies) do not qualify for distribution division requirements. There are some rare exceptions.

Interdisciplinary program courses that the program offers itself normally do not carry distribution division status because these courses are intentionally interdisciplinary and therefore non-divisional. Questions about this should be directed to the interdisciplinary program.

Note that most courses that are eligible for counting toward an interdisciplinary program have subject codes in another department, such as PHIL (Philosophy) or BIOL (Biology) and these courses, along with being eligible for the interdisciplinary program, also fulfill the distribution division requirement for that subject as listed in the Course Schedule or Course Catalog.

Note that COGS 001 was never a Social Sciences distribution course, even in the semesters where it counts toward the Psychology major due to being taught by a psychologist.
