Students who are interested in applying to a Bridging Disciplines Programs (BDP) certificate this fall, this is a reminder that the application deadline is next Wednesday morning at 8:00am.
Students who would like to apply by next week’s deadline can still attend a BDP information session next Tuesday from 11am-12pm in FAC 4.
Information about the BDP application is also available 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, these 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 these programs, on the 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, the office is no longer accepting applications to the Ethics & Leadership in Technology & the Media BDP.
