“The perspective gained working with students from across disciplines is second to none.”
BA in Interdisciplinary Studies
“I have always actively participated in learning, through my career or on my own, and was intrigued by the personalized aspect of the Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies program at Royal Roads University. I decided to continue my learning at RRU for a number of reasons: I was able to design a program according to my interests; I needed a flexible solution that would work with my current schedule and responsibilities; I wanted a program that would value my career experience and provide the academic credentials required to complete my degree; and the support of the academic staff gave me a positive feeling about the university.
The cohort model was critical to the success of my learning experience; the perspective gained working with students from multiple disciplines and experiences was second to none. This model was sometimes challenging, and pushed me into areas I wasn’t comfortable with at first, but I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge from those around me.
My education from RRU has enhanced my teaching, research and study skills. I have a greater understanding of the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to the topics I am teaching, and can better relate to the pressures and learning curve that many students experience when they first enter a post-secondary environment. I’m now developing my learning and skills further with the Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies program at RRU.”
