The Interdisciplinary Studies (IDST) program provides graduate students a unique opportunity to create their own MA/MS degree by drawing from at least two distinct disciplines rather than one single discipline to fit their academic, professional, and personal goals that otherwise were not offered by the University. 

The Interdisciplinary Studies graduate degree offers graduate students a unique opportunity and professional advantage by allowing them to deepen their chosen academic or professional disciplines to align with their career goals. More than ever, employers are seeking graduate students who come from a discipline such as Interdisciplinary Studies that creates a powerful learning experience for students that emphasizes collaboration, integrative learning, critical thinking, and creative problem solving skills.
