Thank you for your understanding.
/r/interdisciplinary is intended to be a place for those involved in or curious about interdisciplinary areas to share and discuss their studies/work, and for inquisitive minds to learn about areas outside standard rigid curriculums/specializations.
So ask away and answer away. Let your curiosity be satisfied on the intrinsic and extrinsic values of interdisciplinary training.

The 20th century was host to the seeming demise of polymaths in the face of the need for specialization due to explosive growth, in the sciences and otherwise. Recent years, however, have seem a surge in interdisciplinary enrichment, from students taking multiple majors to astrophysicists working for hedge funds and pure mathematicians modeling the brain.
I have interest in Computational Biology, Mathematical Biology, Computational Physics, Mathematical Physics, Computational Math, Structural Biology, Computational Structural Biology. All of the major is completely different but are there any major that have all that major crunched down? Perhaps specialized one. Or should i focus on one major in university and self learn with book investment? Thanks. :/
This project is to investigate how individuals with different disciplinary backgrounds engage with a set of Design Innovation Method Cards, bite-size introductions to Design Innovation methods, their language, and a reference for further exploration and practice.
Not sure if this is a questions community, but here goes nothing.
I know that straightedge and compass constructions were central to ancient geometry, and I have also been left with the impression that ancient geometry was in fact central to ancient technology and engineering. How much do we know about practical, hands-on applications in engineering of the kinds of things one can do with a straightedge and compass? I expect such information would be in the domain of the history of mathematics and/or engineering and particularly the ancient and/or medieval period, but I seem to hit a wall finding anything by simple googling. Thanks in advance for your help :)
How is an interdisciplinary university/college (UC Berkeley, University of Washington, etc) different from a regular university/college? What are the benefits and the downsides of attending one? Would you recommend a Business and Computer Science double major to go down this path for their undergraduate degree?
I have an interest in making movies but I want to find a way to combine that with some STEM subject. Does anybody know what STEM major/subject best fits with filmmaking?
