The Bridging Disciplines Programs (BDPs) are now accepting applications!
The next BDP application deadline will be Wednesday, October 9th at 8:00am. If you are interested in applying to a BDP, you 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 the next application deadline will be in early March.
If you are not familiar with the BDPs, their programs offer undergraduates at UT the opportunity to pursue an interdisciplinary certificate. These 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 the programs, on their website. Additionally, there is 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, they are no longer accepting applications to the Ethics & Leadership in Technology & the Media BDP.
For more information about the Bridging Disciplines Programs, please email or call 512-232-7564 to make an appointment with a BDP advisor in the Flawn Academic Center (FAC), room 338.
