Overview

The program is designed for mature students who wish to continue education at the graduate level but do not seek specialized training in a major area. The program is not a substitute for the traditional master’s degree; rather, it is intended for students with broader interests in several fields or those whose career goals do not match fully with a single, identifiable academic unit or department. Emphasis is placed on continued intellectual and cultural development in a constantly changing society where new intellectual and career interests may extend over several traditional specializations.

Programme Structure

Each program is developed individually according to the student’s interests and background but must be intellectually defensible and clearly interdisciplinary in nature. In addition to any Graduate College requirements not mentioned here, the requirements of the IDS Program are as follows:

1) Course work must be selected from a minimum of two academic areas.2) No more than 6 credits of work completed prior to approval of the degree plan by the IDS Committee may be included in the program.3) No more than 11 credits of 300G or 400G courses may be applied toward the program.4) No more than 9 transfer credits may be included in the program.5) No more than 9 credits of independent study may be included in the program.
