About

The Interdisciplinary Studies program of The University of Maine offers mature students with appropriate academic qualifications the opportunity for interdisciplinary graduate work. Students who enter the program may pursue their study on a full-time or part-time basis.

Overview

The Interdisciplinary Studies program of The University of Maine is based on the assumption that technical competence and specialized training are best employed in combination with knowledge traditionally fostered by the liberal arts and sciences. Through core seminars, an individualized program of study, and the completion of a master’s project, students may explore major issues and synthesize knowledge from several disciplines.

Similar programs have attracted professionals who feel they need further study to investigate complex issues connected with their work or interests. Some teachers and librarians find such a course of study an alternative to graduate work in education or in another single discipline. Others see the program as an improvement over a self-directed study of reading or participation in a series of unrelated courses beyond the baccalaureate degree. By emphasizing the integration of knowledge in different disciplines, the program offers a unique alternative to traditional graduate study.
