Add a Certificate to Your Degree
To maximize their time in graduate school, Interdisciplinary Studies students may wish to pursue a graduate certificate that intensifies their training and competency in a particular area.
Through credit-sharing arrangements between Interdisciplinary Studies and other academic units, students may apply 9 credits of course work to both their 36-credit Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies degree and a 15-credit certificate, enabling them to graduate with both a master's and a graduate certificate in just 42 credits.
Interdisciplinary Studies alumni have successfully pursued the Social Entrepreneurship concentration alongside a certificate in Non-Profit Management from the Schar School of Policy and Government, and the Social Justice & Human Rights concentration alongside a certificate in Women & Gender Studies.
Currently, MAIS has credit-sharing arrangements with the following programs or certificates:
- Schar School of Policy and Government
- Women and Gender Studies
- Science Communication
- Spanish Heritage Language Education
- Folklore Studies
But many combinations are possible. Explore the possibilities with us!
