Take The First Step

A Master's With A Mission

The Interdisciplinary Studies (MAIS) program in the College of Humanities & Social Sciences consists of multiple established degree paths that exist in partnership with academic units and faculty across the University. It offers a home for students with broad academic interests who seek a master's degree that will help them to create a better world. While their degree paths may vary dramatically, our students share a desire to address critical problems facing the world today. MAIS encourages students' freedom and creativity while recognizing the demand for high quality, non-traditional graduate programs that transcend disciplinary boundaries.
