Kimberly Post talks about why online students should earn a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies:
“Creativity, adaptability, critical thinking, collaboration — these are highly valued skills in today’s dynamic global economy, and a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies prepares students for such a work environment. Employers are looking for people who not only understand multiple perspectives, but can also make connections between them to better inform the exchange of knowledge and information. Interdisciplinary Studies brings together diverse disciplines in a comprehensive manner so that students can develop understanding and expertise, learning to see connections where they may not be immediately apparent.”
Kimberly Post teaches and is also the director of community-based learning at the College. This role allows her to work with all areas of the college, including both on-campus and online students, and she enjoys finding ways to make meaningful connections between faculty, staff,
students, and the greater communities. She specialize in interdisciplinary teaching and learning.
Previously, she taught a variety of writing, communications, and foundational courses at Southern Maine Community College, Andover College, and Kaplan University. The majority of her higher education teaching experience is with non-traditional learners both in the classroom and
online. She has also taught in middle and high school settings, and has worked privately as a tutor and educational consultant. In her spare time, Kimberly enjoys photography, yoga, and the natural world.
