Interdisciplinary Studies Series

Interdisciplinary Studies Series

“The joy of learning at a liberal arts institution arises from the opportunity to develop academic interests that open us to an ever-widening series of interconnected ideas. The Interdisciplinary Studies program at SMC highlights those components of our community that bind us together across our individual subject areas.” Professor Kris Neely

The Interdisciplinary Studies Series features performances, speakers and art experiences that enhance the liberal arts mission of Spartanburg Methodist College.

For more information about the series, please contact Kris Neely, Professor of Art and Director of the Interdisciplinary Studies Program
