Program Information

Degrees Offered:


Format: Campus

Program Description:

Interdisciplinary Studies is intended for mature students who wish to continue education at the graduate level but do not seek specialized training concentrated in a major area. This program is not a substitute for the traditional master's degree; rather, it is designed for students with broader interests in several fields or for those whose career goals do not match fully with a single identifiable academic unit or department. Emphasis is placed on continued intellectual and cultural development in a constantly changing society where new career interests may extend over several traditional specializations.

Through arrangement with the School of Law, graduate students may take certain courses in law to supplement their programs or, in some cases, to meet the requirements for a formal minor. Enrollment of graduate students in individual law courses is subject to the availability of space and approval of the professor in charge. Graduate students should consult their advisor before enrolling in such courses to ensure that the courses are applicable to their program. Courses that may be appropriate for a minor in legal studies also are available in such areas as political science,history, business administration, and sociology.
