The Master of Arts majoring in Individualized Multidisciplinary (Social Sciences) is a unique graduate program that offers opportunities for critical dialogues across academic disciplines with an emphasis on social, cultural and political thought.
The program offers graduate degrees with concentrations in Anthropology, Kinesiology, Sociology or Women and Gender Studies. There are different course requirements for each concentration (see page 24).
The program integrates a range of theoretical and practical approaches used in the social sciences and fosters scholarship in both contemporary and historical fields of research.
The program incorporates both course work and independent thesis research. Coursework is customized to present students with a range of theories and methods specific to their research interests.
The Individualized Multidisciplinary major (Social Sciences) is overseen by a Program Coordinator who is assisted by an advisory committee composed of faculty representatives actively teaching and supervising from each of the Departments involved in the program.
Graduates of the program will be prepared to continue in academia or to work as critically engaged citizens in a variety of work environments.
