Master of Arts: Interdisciplinary Studies
Interdisciplinary Studies is a 33 credit hour master of arts program of study with a diverse mix of courses, from methodological seminars to thematic courses, independent studies to internships. The nine-credit hours of foundational courses lead to a self-designed curriculum focused on a particular theme, problem, or mode of inquiry.
Students will construct an innovative curriculum that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries, often to answer a specific question or to address a theme of interest to the student.
Niagara University’s Master of Arts: Interdisciplinary Studies program is well suited for two groups of prospective graduate students:
- Mid-career professionals seeking to improve their credentials or to engage a particular topic of study relevant to their profession;
- Individuals working in the nonprofit sector who seek to develop their management skills and initiate a project addressing a pressing social or economic issue.
