Master in Interdisciplinary Studies (MIIS)
The Master in Interdisciplinary Studies (MIIS) program is founded on the belief that many current and future issues of life, health, identity, relationship, technology, belief systems, political vision, environmental wealth, cultural complexity, and the nature and acquisition of knowledge are most fruitfully explored through interdisciplinary approaches. Our mission is to serve graduate students who want to develop new perspectives on human values and questions of social importance, who want to develop new habits of thinking, and who want to advance their analytical and communication skills.
The interdisciplinary program is a 48 credit graduate degree that allows a person to pick a major area of concentration (16-28 credits) and then one or more support areas (12 - 16 credits). There are also core requirements of 8 credits taken over a two year period designed to help you develop ideas and materials in preparation for your culminating thesis/project.
