Bridging Disciplines Programs – Fall 2019 Application Deadline

Greetings from the Bridging Disciplines Programs (BDPs)! The next BDP application deadline will be Wednesday, October 9th at 8:00am. If you have students who are interested in applying to a BDP, please share this date with them. Interested students can attend a BDP information session and can find information about the BDP application on the BDP website. For students who are not quite ready to apply now, please know that our next application deadline will be in early March.

If you are not familiar with the BDPs, our programs offer undergraduates at UT the opportunity to pursue an interdisciplinary certificate. Our certificates complement students’ majors and integrate coursework with experiential learning. Students choose from one of 14 different interdisciplinary themes, such as:
Conflict Resolution & Peace Studies
Design Strategies
Innovation, Creativity & Entrepreneurship
Public Policy
Social Inequality, Health & Policy

You can view a list of all BDP topics, as well as more information about our programs, on our website. We’ve also put together a Box folder where you can access and download a general BDP handout, as well as handouts that group BDPs based on general interest areas. Please note that, as of this fall, we are no longer accepting applications to the Ethics & Leadership in Technology & the Media BDP.
