UC Forward courses have multidisciplinary focus, and they center upon collaboration between students, faculty, and external experts in order to facilitate experiential learning. The courses bring students from dissimilar fields together to work with at least two mentors (faculty, students, external experts, or other partners) also from diverse areas of expertise to create new solutions, knowledge, or products.
