While it is no longer uncommon for social scientists to be included in research groups tackling complex problems in the natural sciences, limited understanding of the different disciplinary areas within the social sciences remains a challenge. Eric Toman describes the approach social science faculties at his university have taken to address this and also outlines how graduate training programmes have been reshaped to balance interdisciplinary breadth with disciplinary depth, allowing students to develop a particular area of expertise while also providing first-hand experiences to help them function effectively within interdisciplinary teams.
