What is Interdisciplinary Studies?
Interdisciplinary is the belief that that all knowledge is interrelated and that he world outside of college is not split into disciplines or subjects. An interdisciplinary approach aims to gain a fuller, richer and more complete sense of the world by thinking of the world from many different angles.

What students are saying about ISP:
“ISP was an amazing experience. It let me explore my interests in innovative ways with Professors and students that made me feel as if I was part of a community. ISP was a place where I could express my opinions, feel a sense of belonging, but most importantly, be challenged to be my best self.”

Nicolas Montano, Thurgood Marshall Scholar, 2013

All the professors truly care about the students and are exceedingly passionate about teaching. Overall, being a part of the ISP community has been one of my favorite experiences at John Jay, and one of the most memorable.”dsc03095

FY39: Susannah Crowder / Kristy Carter FY40: Richard Haw/ Kofi Scott

FY41: Nico Montano/Shirley Sarna FY42: Adriana Perez/Remi Brulin



Monday 11:00-1:30

College Option, Justice Core

Drawing on texts from the humanities and the social sciences, this General Education course will explore how justice—as a word, an ever-changing concept, and a shifting reality—affects and controls individual lives. It will consider such crucial issues as the scope of justice, the definition(s) of what is just, and the problem of how individuals respond to injustice, and it will do so from an interdisciplinary perspective.

ISP 145:01 Why Gender Matters

Zeynep Turan / Jamia Wilson

Monday 3:15-5:45

Flex Core, Individual and Society

Gender has a profound impact on the social, psychological, and economic status of the individual and, to a large extent, determines how one knows oneself and interacts with others. Through the lenses of literature, medicine, anthropology, philosophy, biology and contemporary feminist thought, this introductory course will examine gender as it stands at the crossroads of race, class, politics, sexual orientation and personal identity.

ISP 122: o1 and 02 Those People! Stereotyping in America

Nico Montano/Giazu Enciso Dominguez

Tuesday 8:10-10:40 and 3:15-5:45

Flex Core, US Experience in its Diversity

This course examines the origins, history, and psychosocial effects of stereotypes as they are represented in our national culture. Through analysis of representations of group difference in literature, art, drama, and film, students will explore the nature of American stereotypes and the many ways they reflect and shape the political, social, and cultural landscape in the U.S.

ISP 147:01 Life Stories

Christen Madrazo / Jason Williamson

Wednesday 11:00-1:30

Flex Core, Individual and Society

Our individual life stories are shaped by myriad forces: biological needs; family dynamics; the political, geographical, and socio-economic circumstances in which we find ourselves; historical events; and our own unique quirks, strengths, and failings. By reading memoirs and biographies and writing autobiographical essays of their own, students in this General Education course in the “Individual and Society” area will explore the ways that these forces interact in human lives.

ISP 110:01 When Nature Roars: Global Catastrophes and Human Responsibility

Zeynep Turan/Kristy Carter

Wednesday 3:15 – 5:30

Flex Core, World Cultures

As much as we like to think of ourselves as master of the universe, human civilization exist under threats from the great destructive powers of nature as well as our own capacity for large-scale destruction. This course explores the causes, effects, and consequences of natural and man-made catastrophes within and across national, regional, and global boundaries, and the moral, ethical, and legal dimensions of preventing and responding such crisis.

ISP 112: o1 and 02 Travel and Transformation

Richard Haw/ Adriana Perez

Thursday 8:10-10:40 and 3:15-5:45

Flex Core, World Cultures

This course will explore what happens when people travel, when they leave the comfort and security of the familiar and venture into the unknown, to learn, encounter, adapt and clash with new and unfamiliar people and cultures. It will examine the cultural assumptions we bring along when we travel and the racial, ethnic, gender and class perspectives that underpin our notions of the world through which we move. It will interrogate, analyze and critique the narratives we construct about other people, other cultures and other places, and consider how our encounters with other cultures transform us, just as we transform them. This course draws on texts from the humanities and social sciences, and will consider representations of travel in drama, film, literature and the fine arts.

ENG 101 Exploration and Authorship: An Inquiry-Based Writing Course

ISP 1: Yasmin Dalisay

ISP 2 and 3 Amy Rosenberg



Monday and Wednesday 9:25-10:40

Tuesday and Thursday 10:50-12:05, 12:15-1:30 THEY SCHEDULE?



Common Core, College Composition I

This course introduces students to the skills, habits, and conventions necessary to prepare inquiry-based research for college. While offering students techniques and practices of invention and revision, this theme-based composition course teaches students the expectations of college-level research, academic devices for exploring ideas, and rhetorical strategies for completing investigative writing. Students prepare a sequence of prescribed assignments that culminate in a final research paper. These assignments provide small manageable task that explore the process of the normally overwhelming research paper. The course grade is based on the quality of revised writing in a final portfolio.
