A Master of Arts, or MA, degree trains students beyond the level of an undergraduate degree in various fields. At the conferral of an MA, a graduate is considered an expert in his or her area of study. An MA can lead to better employment, or towards a higher degree.

What is an MA in Interdisciplinary Study? This degree offers students the ability to merge two or more areas of study into one “interdisciplinary” study. Students can often select the areas of study they wish to combine. Some universities have suggested degree tracks, and others allow scholars to design their own track. Program participants study integrated topics based on their needs. For example, if a teacher wanted to improve her or his teaching practice among medically fragile students, that person might study education courses along with physiology courses. There is an endless amount of combinations for an interdisciplinary degree, and they are individualized to program participants.

In the process of designing one’s own learning, students gain leadership and management skills. By studying various subjects, they learn problem-solving abilities that transcend disciplinary boundaries. Organizational skills are developed through the coursework and the management of it.

The cost of the program varies by country and school. An MA in Interdisciplinary Study usually takes two years to earn if one works full-time.

People with an MA in Interdisciplinary Study are valuable employees because of their ability to cross boundaries. Graduates of this degree scheme often come away with superior communication and analytical skills. They find work in various fields, depending on the disciplines they have chosen. Some have worked as historians, publishers, writers, educators, and museum personnel. Many work in combinations of these fields, based on their MA concentration.

Many universities, both locally and globally, offer this degree program. Online courses are also available for those who need flexibility. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
