Collaborative Learning: Interdisciplinary Education

UW Bothell enjoys a top reputation for its progressive, interdisciplinary and cross-programmatic approach to education. We promote collaboration among our faculty, our students and our academic programs. Through hands-on participation, students learn the benefits of cooperation and integration: social, academic and career; campus and community; local, global and environmental. Read about some of our collaborative programs at the links below.
