Multidisciplinary studies have been a distinctive feature of academic life at Vassar for more than three decades, fostering an intellectual environment that thrives on crossing disciplinary boundaries and challenging prevailing models of truth. The free exchange of ideas across disciplines stimulates the development of new courses, programs, and resources. Recently, for example, five professors from the departments of biology, psychology, and computer science collaborated to create Vassar’s new Interdisciplinary Robotics Research Laboratory, where students and faculty carry out investigations with physical robots as well as computer simulations of virtual robots to further our understanding of complex systems.
