HUMANS ARE MADE EQUAL
HUMANS. believes that while investing in interdisciplinary education is essential, it should not receive more funding than uni-disciplinary programs.
We recognize the value of interdisciplinary education in providing students with diverse perspectives on a subject, as seen in programs like honours, PPLE, or IIS. These programs can promote critical thinking, collaboration, and adaptability, which are crucial in today's complex world.
However, it is also important to maintain and strengthen uni-disciplinary programs, which are the foundation of specialized knowledge and skills. Uni-disciplinary programs often provide students with deep expertise in a specific area, which can be valuable for further research, innovation, or pursuing careers in specialized industries.
Allocating a disproportionate amount of resources to interdisciplinary education could undermine the importance of focused, discipline-specific knowledge. We advocate for a balanced approach to funding, which considers the unique benefits of both interdisciplinary and uni-disciplinary programs, ensuring that both approaches receive the support they require to thrive within the university ecosystem.
