The School for Cross-faculty Studies consists of three divisions: Liberal Arts, Global Sustainable Development, and the Institute for Global Sustainable Development.

All three divisions actively engage with research and our research interests span a wide range of areas from pedagogy and cultural studies to sustainability challenges. Our overarching emphasis is on close links between teaching and research activities, and interdisciplinary research focused on sustainability challenges (broadly understood).
