Pretty easy, overall.
It is a class that applies to everyone, no matter their field of interest. In fact, if everyone took a course with a focus on interdisciplinary studies, it would do more than simply benefit them-- it would bring more power and legitimicacy to academia.
Though the course curriculum may vary from semester to semester, I had the pleasure of hearing from speakers with backgrounds in philosophy, organic chemistry, physics, business, economics, and medieval literature. The blend was fascinating as it was enlightening. I left with a more practical interest in behavioral economics-- a field that merges psychology, sociology, and economics to create more empirical insights into human behavior. I hope that as it deepens in understanding, it will continue to broaden to more diverse inquisitions as well.

Advice for students:
Attend all of the lectures and take thorough notes. I still refer to my notes years later to add unique insights to my studies today.
