Course Overview

The BDP concentrations represent areas of innovative faculty research, teaching, and collaboration at UT Austin. Each program is guided by a cross-college panel of faculty members with research experience related to the BDP topic.

After completing 19 credit hours of coursework, research, and internship experiences, students earn a certificate demonstrating a secondary area of specialization that complements the major. By studying an issue from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, they become more flexible, versatile thinkers, prepared for a professional world that values collaboration and innovation. Students in the BDPs also gain access to unique research and internship experiences at UT Austin and around the world, giving them hands-on experience applying what they have learned in the classroom.

Formed in 2002 by the Provost’s Office, the Bridging Disciplines Programs are a part of the School of Undergraduate Studies, which provides a diverse set of programs and resources that traverse boundaries between colleges and disciplines and enhance the quality of undergraduate education.
 

LBJ School faculty teach a variety of BDP courses for other departments. As of Fall 2012, the LBJ School will begin it's own public policy bridging discipline topics.
