The Interdisciplinary Master of Arts (IMA) at the Antioch University is designed to provide students with the opportunity to individualize their graduate program to reflect their unique interests through study in two or more academic disciplines tailored to their particular interests and career goals.


Each IMA student may select a faculty advisor, typically from their primary concentration area.

The Interdisciplinary Master of Arts students from the Antioch University create a self-designed curriculum typically drawn from two or three departments. The student develops their Academic Program Plan with guidance from the IMA program director and AUNE core faculty. They choose a topic that is more focused than the offerings of a particular department, but requires the perspectives of other fields.

For example, students have created programs such as: Advocacy and Management of Psychological Services; Forest Health and Ecology; and Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice. Another option for students is to choose an existing AUNE certificate for their primary or minor concentration. This program does not offer professional certification.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the program, an IMA graduate should be able to:

  • Understand at least two different ways of knowing, and communicate how knowledge from different disciplines and professions can be integrated to enhance a particular subject of study.
  • Employ approaches to promote diversity in your field or profession.
  • Become a reflective practitioner who combines theory and practice.
  • Express how your work contributes to social justice, and the mission, vision, and values of the institution.
  • Articulate the current discourse in your field/s of study, and how that discourse broadens knowledge and deepens practice.
  • Employ best practices in your field, and develop the professional skills needed to apply those skills in practice.
