Interdisciplinary & integrated
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 rigorous, applied academic 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.
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.more
