Program Description:

The Master of Professional Studies (MPS) is an online interdisciplinary graduate degree program in the social sciences and the professions. The 33-hour MPS program is designed for working adults who wish to pursue graduate professional studies that combine two or more disciplines. Because the MPS students’ academic needs and interests are multidisciplinary, they generally are not served by traditional professional programs. The MPS allows for the development of professionally oriented programs that respond to the dynamic needs of students working in or preparing for rapidly changing professional environments and expectations. In this program of interdisciplinary graduate studies, students make connections between various professional fields and traditional social science disciplines. For the purposes of the MPS program, profession is defined broadly, not limiting profession to traditional areas such as law and medicine. Professionals who might be served by the MPS program include individuals working in commerce, information technology, mass media, government, social services,health care, and education. The MPS is a Regents Online Degree Program(RODP) offered cooperatively by all Tennessee Board of Regents universities.
