The School of Social Ecology is one of the schools of the University of California, Irvine (UCI). When it was founded in 1970, it was highly controversial to devote a school to the study of social ecology and human ecology, a field "centered on the concept of the human being as a biological organism in a cultural-physical environment", and the founding class consisted only of 35 students. Social ecology programs remain rare at U.S. universities, but the School of Social Ecology at UCI currently enrolls nearly 3,000 students and is the third largest school at UCI by student population. Students in the social ecology program at UCI undergo a multidisciplinary program that examines real-world social and environmental issues and that involves the students in off-campus internships as well as on-campus courses.
The school has three departments: Criminology, Law and Society; Psychology and Social Behavior; and Planning, Policy, and Design. Its faculty include Distinguished Professor Elizabeth Loftus, known for her expertise on false memories.

Divinity (in some form or other) is one of only two subjects to have been taught continuously throughout the history of the University.
The Faculty is now situated on the University's Sidgwick Site, in the west of the city (the current Faculty building being officially opened in 2001). It is part of the Cambridge Theological Federation, offering academic training to ordinands as well as to the University's own undergraduates .
The current undergraduate degree is called 'Theological and Religious Studies' rather than Divinity, reflecting the range of topics and diversification in the field covered by the teaching.
The following are notable past and present senior members of the Faculty of Divinity.

The Faculty of Arts Chulalongkorn University was established in 1917. It is one of the first 4 faculties of the university. Its former name is Faculty of Arts and Science. At the time of establishment, the first 2 missions of the faculty were to teach the students humanities and sciences and to produce secondary school teachers. In 1934, the faculty started to offer a bachelor degree of Arts. Nowadays, there are many programs in undergraduate, graduate and doctor of philosophy.
On March 26, 1916, H.M. King Vajiravudh had the Civil Service College elevated to the status of a university and named it after his father, Chulalongkorn. In the subsequent year, H.R.H. the Prince Rangsit of Chainat, who was the first Director-General of the University Affairs Department in the Ministry of Education, established the Faculty of Arts and Science together with other faculties in the University, namely, Engineering, Medicine and Political Science.
During its initial stages, the Faculty of Arts and Science placed emphasis on the instruction of courses related to Pre-Medicine—Chemistry, Biology and Physics and students could also take classes in English, French and History. In 1928, it offered a

The Programming Research Group (PRG) is part of the Oxford University Computing Laboratory (OUCL). It was founded by Christopher Strachey in 1965 and after his death, C.A.R. Hoare, FRS took over the leadership in 1977. The PRG ethos is summed up by the following quotation from Strachey, found and promulgated by Tony Hoare after he arrived at the PRG:
It has long been my personal view that the separation of practical and theoretical work is artificial and injurious. Much of the practical work done in computing, both in software and in hardware design, is unsound and clumsy because the people who do it have not any clear understanding of the fundamental design principles of their work. Most of the abstract mathematical and theoretical work is sterile because it has no point of contact with real computing. One of the central aims of the Programming Research Group as a teaching and research group has been to set up an atmosphere in which this separation cannot happen.
The PRG has traditionally been a centre of excellence in the field of formal methods, playing a leading role in the development of the Z notation (initiated by a visit of Jean-Raymond Abrial) and CSP (together with the
Psychology is an academic and applied discipline that involves the scientific study of mental functions and behaviors. Psychology has the immediate goal of understanding individuals and groups by both establishing general principles and researching specific cases, and by many accounts it ultimately aims to benefit society. In this field, a professional practitioner or researcher is called a psychologist, and can be classified as a social, behavioral, or cognitive scientist. Psychologists attempt to understand the role of mental functions in individual and social behavior, while also exploring the physiological and neurobiological processes that underlie certain cognitive functions and behaviors.
Psychologists explore concepts such as perception, cognition, attention, emotion, phenomenology, motivation, brain functioning, personality, behavior, and interpersonal relationships. Psychologists of diverse stripes also consider the unconscious mind. Psychologists employ empirical methods to infer causal and correlational relationships between psychosocial variables. In addition, or in opposition, to employing empirical and deductive methods, some—especially clinical and counseling

Under the direction of renowned stem cell researcher Dr. Irving Weissman, the institute is devoted to exploring the how stem cells are created, the mechanisms by which they are regulated and how they devolve into specialized cells. The ultimate goal is to translate this knowledge into dramatic new medical therapies for some of the world’s most serious and intractable afflictions. Finally, as part of Stanford School of Medicine, the institute is dedicated to training the next generation of stem cell researchers.
The Institute is structured to foster success in meeting these goals. Interdisciplinary collaborations are the engine that promotes discovery and accelerates translational research. Collaborations between faculty, post-docs and students from diverse disciplines have led to significant discoveries and have been a hallmark of Stanford’s leadership in the past. This fertile, interdisciplinary environment is partly due to the proximity of the seven schools on Stanford’s compact campus, the Stanford Hospital and Clinics, and the entrepreneurial environment of Silicon Valley. This environment is a stage for dynamic collaboration among those who will create the future of medicine: basic scientists, clinical researchers, medical care providers, legal and ethical scholars, biomedical engineers, business leaders, and venture capitalists.

Information science (or information studies) is an interdisciplinary field primarily concerned with the analysis, collection, classification, manipulation, storage, retrieval and dissemination of information. Practitioners within the field study the application and usage of knowledge in organizations, along with the interaction between people, organizations and any existing information systems, with the aim of creating, replacing, improving or understanding information systems. Information science is often (mistakenly) considered a branch of computer science. However, it is actually a broad, interdisciplinary field, incorporating not only aspects of computer science, but often diverse fields such as archival science, cognitive science, commerce, communications, law, library science, museology, management, mathematics, philosophy, public policy, and the social sciences.
Information science should not be confused with information theory, the study of a particular mathematical concept of information, or with library science, a field related to libraries which uses some of the principles of information science.
Information science focuses on understanding problems from the perspective

Tropical medicine (also sometimes called International medicine) is the branch of medicine that deals with health problems that occur uniquely, are more widespread, or prove more difficult to control in tropical and subtropical regions.
Many infections and infestations that are classified as "tropical diseases" used to be endemic in countries located in temperate or even cold areas. This includes widespread epidemics such as malaria and hookworm infections as well as exceedingly rare diseases like lagochilascaris minor. Many of these diseases have been controlled or even eliminated from developed countries, as a result of improvements in housing, diet, sanitation, and personal hygiene. Since climate is not the main reason why those infections remain endemic in tropical areas, there is a trend towards renaming this speciality as "Geographic Medicine" or "Third World Medicine."
The training in Tropical Medicine is quite different between countries. Most physicians are trained at Institutes of Tropical Medicine. For example, the training of Dutch tropical doctors consists of two clinical years (Obstetrics & Gynecology, Paediatrics or General Surgery) and a three months course at the

The History of Consciousness program is an interdisciplinary graduate program in the humanities with links to the sciences, social sciences, and arts at the University of California at Santa Cruz.
The program was started in the first year of the Santa Cruz campus in a rather informal manner. A small group of faculty members, including the American historian Page Smith, philosopher Maurice Natanson, culture theorist Harry Berger, Jr., and psychology professor Bert Kaplan, approached the University of California system-wide Graduate Council with a proposal for a new type of graduate program for the new campus. According to the founding Chancellor of the campus, Dean McHenry, they did not consult with him and the program was approved without his input.
For over a decade, there were no direct faculty appointments to the program and all faculty teaching in the program was done by members of established Boards of Studies (at the time, the UC Santa Cruz equivalent of departments). This led to problems in budgeting and program continuity, and coupled with the innovative interdisciplinary nature of the program, it also presented challenges in placing History of Consciousness graduates in

The Faculty of Architecture, Urbanism and Arts (Spanish: Facultad de Arquitectura, Urbanismo y Artes) is one of the eleven constituent faculties of the National University of Engineering (Universidad Nacional de Ingeniería) located in Lima, Peru. It was founded in 1910 as the Special Section of Builders Architects (Sección Especial de Arquitectos Constructores) making it the first school of architecture to be established in Peru. The faculty is traditionally known as one of the leading schools of architecture in Peru because it paved the way of architecture in the country.
Before the foundation of the school, architecture was taught as a specialized course for scientists at the National University of San Marcos since 1868 and for civil engineers after the foundation in 1876 of the School of Engineers (Escuela de Ingenieros). The faculty was established by president Augusto B. Leguía on April 30, 1910 under the direction of Polish architect Ricardo de Jaxa Malachowski. During its early years, the curriculum was dominated by the courses on construction and sciences, however, as time passed, the influence of the teaching methodology of the Beaux-Arts increased. In 1946, as a result of
