What universities offer interdisciplinary programs, drawing from
several departments? For example, Harvard offers degrees from their
interdiciplinary Mind-Brain-Behavior group, a collaborative effort
between biology, psychology, cognitive science, and neuroscience. I am
looking for at least 20 programs from at least 10 universities.

In answer to your request, here is a list of 18 different universities
with 20 programs that are "interdisciplinary programs, drawing from
several departments."

In general, these sites can be retrieved by searching
with the following phrase in quotation marks (as indicated):

	"interdisciplinary major in"

Using quotation marks around your terms is how one searches for a
phrase in Google, a most useful technique.

In doing my research, I tried to select an array in different academic
disciplines, but if you do the search as indicated above you can have
your pick of the many other academic programs not listed herein.

I'm including the kind of description typically listed with each
program as an example with the first entry only here. Rather than
inundate you with pages of "cut and paste" I recommend you pursue each
link for which there is interest, or duplicate the search as described
