With Athabasca University’s Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies - Educational Studies, you will learn to think holistically, critically and reflectively. You will find the connections and points of overlap between specialized and generalized knowledge. You will also learn problem-solving skills and policy-making strategies.
Interdisciplinary Studies - Educational Studies provides a "critical foundations approach" to understanding educational issues and practices by drawing upon a range of theories and methods from history, sociology, cultural studies, economics, political science, philosophy and psychology.
This approach provides viewers with a critical, integrated understanding of the relations between instructors/teachers, students/learners, educational organization(s) and society. Your program will finish with a final integrated project or capstone paper that will exercise and explore your newly acquired skills and knowledge.
You can choose to complete this project in a grouped study capstone course, or through an individual study project that will allow you to:
- explore a question or issue that’s important to you
- relate your research to a work or life situation
- address a community problem
- Self-Directed Behaviour
- Global Education
- Industrial Heritage
