Interdisciplinary & integrated

Course guidance

Interdisciplinary and/or integrated courses may be used to satisfy one or several of the "a-g" subject requirements. For example, an integrated humanities program may be used to satisfy part of the history / social science (“a”), part of the English (“b”) and part of the elective ("g") requirements.

Many schools are guided by reform initiatives that encourage the integration of academic and career-related content to form courses that are both rigorous and relevant. These applied courses may be approved by UC if teachers focus on the academic content, using the career-related content as an application and extension of the core knowledge taught in the academic area. UC faculty has established course guidelines for curriculum integrating academic and career-technical content.

Sample courses

Samples of interdisciplinary and integrated courses approved in the “a-g” subject areas are available for reference as you prepare your own course for UC approval.
