The Interdisciplinary Studies (MAIS) program in the College of Humanities & Social Sciences consists of multiple established degree paths that exist in partnership with academic units and faculty across the University. It offers a home for students with broad academic interests who seek a master's degree that will help them to create a better world. While their degree paths may vary dramatically, our students share a desire to address critical problems facing the world today. MAIS encourages students' freedom and creativity while recognizing the demand for high quality, non-traditional graduate programs that transcend disciplinary boundaries.
Religious Studies provides inquiry into religion as an organizing principle, and frequent source of conflict, with training suitable for careers in law, government, journalism, library sciences, teaching and work with non-profits.
