Learn more about the program and requirements.
Integrative Studies is a degree for the future and a rigorous academic pursuit. It requires personal engagement to make connections between existing knowledge and future goals.
Students learn to integrate theories, methods, insights and practices from various disciplines into a focused body of knowledge.
There are two required courses for the MAIS degree with the remaining course work to be developed and tailored to your own interests and goals.
While your individualized path must span at least two disciplines, you have more than 20 graduate programs from which to choose courses.
Students engage in intense intellectual engagement both inside and outside the classroom.
The Graduate Program is ideal for adults seeking personal and intellectual growth and professional development. A significant number of Integrative Studies graduates enter the program looking for ways to enrich their quest for knowledge, and in the process, they find useful ways to serve the greater good by starting their own businesses, publishing their research and teaching. Other graduates capitalize on their experience to advance their careers as social service providers, government employees, social justice activists and members of faith-based organizations.
