This book highlights models for promoting interdisciplinary thinking and an appreciation for interdisciplinary understanding among students in STEM-related fields. Students
majoring in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics often perceive
that courses in their major are not related to the general education liberal
arts courses required for their degrees. 
This separation prevents the transfer of skills between their general
education courses and their degree pursuits. The false dichotomy is particularly
important because solving the daunting challenges of the twenty-first
century—such as drug-resistant bacteria, scarcity of natural resources, and
climate change—requires global citizens armed with robust, complex abilities
who can integrate interdisciplinary concepts with bold technologies.
Contributors to this book explore ways in which this dichotomy can be overcome.
