The four CIS concentrations are a vibrant, intellectual space for faculty and students to engage social, political, and cultural issues through coursework, events, and activities. Each of the CIS concentrations has a Concentration Director who is available to provide guidance to students building an academic program. Each concentration also has a set of diverse faculty from a variety of departments who specialize in the content and themes of the concentration through their research or teaching. Given the depth of faculty and courses in the concentrations, students and faculty have the opportunity to engage in the types of interdisciplinary work that bridge and transform teaching, research, and writing.

The Concentrations are interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary minors, and students may add a Concentration through filing a Change of Academic Plan.  Note: It is important to meet with the Concentration Director once you submit a request for Change of Academic Plan to add the Concentration so that the Director may advise you about any specific requirements and guide you with course selection.
