This chapter provides a retrospective look at my experiences during an interdisciplinary course at an urban university. Course format and objectives allowed for a varied experience by combining multiple learning methodologies and opportunities. A focus is given to two class assignments that illustrate the process of integrating insights from disparate disciplines through critical thinking, creativity, and teamwork. Despite the variability and unpredictability of individual experience, the review provides evidence for the unique challenges and distinct advantages of interdisciplinary learning.
