Curriculum

Active and Living Curriculum
UIDS curriculum can be summed up in 3 important active or living goals: Original Knowledge (Research), Model and Product. A UIDS active and living curriculum must contain and product original knowledge through a research process, a model originating from the knowledge and a product, a production or a valuable reproducible knowledge, model or product.

Curriculum
UIDS aims at preparing students at all levels to be thinkers, discoverers, researchers, scholars, practitioners and producers. All UIDS graduates must be able to think on their own, produce by their own and originate thoughts and action of their own. The curriculum is planned so learners can be set free to explore and discover not only knowledge but the applications of what they have found, not only learned.
All degree studies in UIDS operate under one curriculum, the Interdisciplinary Studies, whether it is kindergarten or postgraduate levels. The only difference is the depth, width, length and complexity of the studies appropriate to their learning levels.

K-24
UIDS K-24 (Kindergarten to Graduate Studies and Post-Doctoral) in Interdisciplinary Studies (GSIS) curriculums reflect each other. Students have liberty in their learning leading to their freedom of knowledge finding, and the birth of their original and applicable knowledge. The differences in knowledge levels are the depth, the discoveries and end goals appropriate to each study level.
K-18 (Kindergarten to undergraduate levels) curriculums will be dealt with in detail in separate K-12 and undergraduate studies catalogs.
Classes beyond 18 are graduate and post-graduate studies.

a.Students who already have proven to have a high independent learning and research skill may take independent study, conference and seminar courses.
Students who cannot finish their research within the semester will receive an ‘I’ (Incomplete) grade. They must re-register for the course and finish the research within the next semester. There will not be grade accumulation until they have received the final letter grade. Students who fail to complete the course within 2 semesters may re-register as a Repeat. They will receive an ‘R’ grade but it will not be counted towards graduation.
