 The Centre for Integrative Studies (CIS)
                          where tomorrow’s disciplines are integrated today

 The Centre for Integrative Studies (CIS) pursues integration of knowledge, with special emphasis on scientific and mathematical inquiries. By integration, we mean connecting and unifying the apparently disconnected and fragmented knowledge, at the intradisciplinary, interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and trans-disciplinary levels:

  • Intradisciplinary: unifying apparently diverse data within a discipline through observational generalizations and theories. [more]
  • Interdisciplinary: unifying two disciplines by an interface. [more]
  • Multidisciplinary: bringing together various disciplines to engage with a single question or problem. [more]
  • Trans-disciplinary: unifying various disciplines through concepts and modes of inquiry whose scope crosses disciplinary boundaries. [more]

In both education and research, CIS pursues integration by formulating and addressing overarching questions that dissolve disciplinary boundaries and facilitate dialogues and synergy across the whole range of academia. [more]
