A Master of Arts (MA) degree provides students with in-depth knowledge to apply to their future careers. The topic of study can be similar in focus to a student's undergraduate field, but at a more advanced level, or it can be in complementary area that expands the student's knowledge of related topics.

What is an MA in Interdisciplinary Studies? This advanced program can be individually tailored to integrate separate fields into a specialized degree. Students may have unique educational and career goals that are met by combining fields of study. Common courses cover topics such as business, humanities, social sciences, environmental sciences, political theory, cultural studies, anthropology and education. A Master's in Interdisciplinary Studies can offer flexibility that may not be available with other degrees.

Students in this type of program learn how to take diverse data points and integrate them to develop concepts and apply them to solving complex problems. They develop critical thinking skills and the communication and presentation expertise to explain multipart theories.

The cost for a master’s degree in interdisciplinary studies can vary, depending on the chosen area of study. The student’s undergraduate degree may also have an impact on the cost if additional coursework is required. Another factor that can affect the cost is whether the student chooses a full-time or part-time schedule.

Depending on the field of study, graduates can become teachers or professors at community colleges or universities. Many students pursue careers as journalists or business writers for online or print publications that cover their areas of expertise. Graduates of these programs may also find rewarding careers as political scientists or regulatory affairs managers who work with government agencies. Nonprofit organizations can hire graduates as directors, grant writers or analysts. Corporations have looked to interdisciplinary studies graduates to fill positions as loss prevention managers or research and development directors.

Interdisciplinary studies can be pursued full-time on campus, via online classes, or part-time in evening courses. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
