In academia, pedagogy, physical sciences, earth sciences, human sciences and social sciences in general, an interdisciplinary field is a term of art in the teaching professions, whereas the terms multidisciplinary field or interdisciplinary fields have become the hallmark of many modern technical professions which must cross traditional academic boundaries as new needs and professions have emerged. Originally the term was applied within education and training pedagogies in reference to the needs of definition and qualities of studies that cut across several established disciplines or traditional fields of study as stimulated by the advance of knowledge. Subsequently, the term has also come to be applied to new professions such as geobiology and old fields such as psychiatry where the professional must have advanced credentials in several fields of study.
