Why Knowledge Integration?

Kevin pointingKnowledge Integration (KI) allows you to make connections across the arts and the sciences in order to discover, design and develop solutions to ambitious problems. Transdisciplinary leaders and skilled generalists can pioneer crossover solutions and build bridges between specialists.

Why narrow your interests, when you can integrate them?

By graduation, you and your classmates will be able to read deeply, write clearly, craft a solid argument, function in a second language, and evaluate the credibility of a statistical analysis. This is achieved through a focus on depth, choice and balance in course selection. Twelve required courses and twenty-eight electives will give you the background you need to become a transdisciplinary leader.

You’ll also earn a one-of-a-kind Bachelor of Knowledge Integration (BKI) degree.

One degree. Endless opportunities. Meet 3 of our students!

"When I was in high school, I loved a lot of different subjects and was very involved in clubs, student councils, and other extra-curricular activities. While a lot of my friends knew exactly where they wanted to apply for post-secondary education, I had no idea what I wanted to do.

When I think back to my high school self, I wish I knew how amazing the KI community is. There are so many opportunities to get involved within and beyond the KI community and I have learned as much from my peers as I have from my classes. I am so grateful that I chose KI."

-- Ellen Taylor, BKI Class of 2021
