Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies
Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies, 3rd Edition.
The SAGE edge site for Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies by Allen F. Repko, Rick Szostak, and Michelle Phillips Buchberger offers a robust online environment you can access anytime, anywhere, and features an impressive array of free tools and resources to keep you on the cutting edge of your learning experience.
Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies provides a comprehensive introduction to interdisciplinary studies with an approach that is succinct, conceptual, and practical. Completely updated to reflect advances in the literature on research, learning, and assessment, the book describes the role of both disciplines and interdisciplinarity within the academy, and how these have evolved. Authors Allen F. Repko, Rick Szostak, and Michelle Phillips Buchberger effectively show students how to think like interdisciplinarians in order to facilitate their working with topics, complex problems, or themes that span multiple disciplines. New to the Third Edition are guiding questions at the start of each chapter; a discussion of the public policy issue of "basic income" as an example at the end of each chapter; group exercises added to Chapter 10; and a class project illustrated in Chapter 9; plus updated examples and references throughout.
We gratefully acknowledge Allen F. Repko, Rick Szostak, and Michelle Phillips Buchberger for writing an excellent text. Special thanks are also due to Amy Donley of University of Central Florida for developing the ancillaries on this site.
