Degree Options

As our world rapidly changes, so do the needs of industry. Research tells us that there is a growing need for programs that train students in multiple disciplines so that they are prepared to address complex problems once they have joined the workforce.

As a result, the fastest growth in master’s enrollments is coming from flexible programs like IDP. Many who are studying and training for careers in areas like data analytics, arts management, cognitive science, health informatics or computational linguistics are doing so through interdisciplinary programs.
Students considering the Interdisciplinary Program can choose between a degree in Humanities, Social Sciences or Natural Sciences.

  • MA in Humanities
    MA in Humanities students design individual programs combining course work in arts and humanities, or choose to integrate one of the above disciplines with a Social or Natural Science.
  • MS in Natural Sciences
    The MS in Natural Sciences is a flexible graduate program that offers students the option of combining one area of natural science with graduate course work in a variety of related disciplines.
  • MS in Social Sciences
    The MS in Social Sciences Interdisciplinary Program offers students the freedom to design a specialized graduate curriculum, gain advanced training in research methods and complete a capstone research project.
