About CIS

Tufts University is committed to interdisciplinary work across its schools, departments and programs. The Center for Interdisciplinary Studies (CIS) helps to foster interdisciplinarity at Tufts through providing forums for faculty, staff and students to present their work, co-curricular programming and sponsorship and advocacy of courses that cross disciplines.

In addition, CIS oversees the Interdisciplinary Major program, an opportunity for students to craft a major that incorporates at least three different departments or programs. CIS provides administrative oversight and support for students doing Interdisciplinary Majors.

CIS also oversees the CIS Senior thesis. This is an opportunity for students who wish to pursue a thesis in an area that crosses disciplines, where the topic of the thesis is outside of one discipline and couldn’t be pursued as an honors thesis within a student’s major (See CIS Senior thesis page for more details).
