The Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies is a unique program designed for students who want to develop their own degree program by combining areas of study traditionally associated with a Master of Arts (humanities, social sciences, communication, etc.). Students have the flexibility to create an individually tailored plan by choosing two concentrations that culminate in either a thesis or nonthesis experience based on their future aspirations.

The non-thesis track culminates in a capstone experience that prepares students for applied, non-research oriented careers.

The thesis track culminates in a scholarly publication that includes original research undertaken during your time as a graduate student. This provides excellent preparation for the future pursuit of a doctoral degree or research-oriented career.
