The Master of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies is a unique program designed for students who want to develop their own precision degree program by combining areas of study traditionally associated with a Master of Science (Engineering, Life and Physical Sciences, etc.). Students have the flexibility to create an individually tailored plan by choosing two concentrations that culminate in either a thesis or nonthesis experience based on their future aspirations.
The Nonthesis Track culminates in a capstone experience that prepares students for applied, non-research oriented careers.
The Thesis Track culminates in a scholarly publication that includes original research undertaken during students' graduate program. This provides excellent preparation for the future pursuit of a doctoral degree or research-oriented career.
