  Interdisciplinary Learning in Your Classroom: Exploration
A well-designed interdisciplinary unit uses organizing centers and essential questions as a conceptual lens that validates each discipline base as having depth and integrity all its own, while at the same time revealing connections among the disciplines.
Interdisciplinary design is highlighted by a deliberate, elevated, and overt declaration and examination of essential questions, or conceptually oriented questions that spark curiosity and frame the scope and sequence of learning.
If you seek out the standards that require interdisciplinary curriculum design and address these during your interdisciplinary unit(s), then you should have plenty of time to cover materials required by testing in other units.

  Interdisciplinary Courses and Team Teaching
One of the great strengths of the interdisciplinary course, at its best, is that the faculty, who are the experts, have already wrestled with and to some extent resolved the differences in their methodological and disciplinary perspectives.
In the ideal interdisciplinary version of this course, perhaps even more disciplines, representing the physical and social sciences, would be brought together, and a new and slightly different rendition of the subject might be invented by the participants as a result of further struggle to reconcile differences and discover commonalties.
In the ideal interdisciplinary team-taught course, the subject grows out of the idea; it is invented by the faculty who participate in the course, it is more than the sum of the disciplinary parts, and it is presented to the students, as nearly as possibly, as an integrated whole.

 Interdisciplinary Major - Majors in Two or More Disciplines and Departments - Hollins University
An interdisciplinary major enables a student to construct from two or more disciplines a course of study not available through one department.
The interdisciplinary major consists of at least eight courses, including a course in research methods from one of the disciplines (or an equivalent introduction to sources and a coordinating tutorial chosen in consultation with the student's two advisors.) In addition, the major requires one internship related to the area of interest.
Possible subjects for interdisciplinary majors include a period, an idea, or a set of problems: work on the Renaissance in English, history, art and music; work on human freedom in philosophy, psychology, sociology, and political science.

Nonetheless, while the desirability of interdisciplinary inquiry has been widely acknowledged, indeed has become 'the mantra of science policy'[3], the methods of interdisciplinary collaboration are opaque to outsiders and generally remain undescribed.
Researchers have an obligation to make their procedures transparent, but interdisciplinary teams –; while they report methods of data collection and analysis – seldom report the methods they employ in the process of achieving interdisciplinary collaboration itself.

 Interdisciplinary Studies
Some concentrations are interdisciplinary by nature and are already recognized and defined by the scholarly community, for example, environmental studies, cognitive science or Native American studies.
Note that the subdivisions of an interdisciplinary concentration are typically not the different disciplines or perspectives that make the concentration interdisciplinary; rather, each subdivision is itself a combination of perspectives.
In recognition of the importance of the whole, a unique requirement for interdisciplinary concentrations is the inclusion of one study that explicitly integrates (or stitches together) the key component parts.
