About

The Interdisciplinary Studies is a multi-disciplinary, advanced program at Texas A&M Texarkana of study that provides the student with a broad perspective and foundational knowledge in more than one subject. 

Overview

Sometimes a focused graduate program is not sufficient to meet a student's unique career goal or a student simply has multiple interests; this program can be "customized" with a main anchor area and two supplemental disciplines. 

With the Interdisciplinary Studies program at Texas A&M Texarkana students will develop an awareness of the perspectives and philosophies of various interest groups and contexts, and be encouraged to take a multi-disciplinary approach to problem-solving and workplace innovation.

The interrelatedness of the disciplines is important as students make decisions in degree planning and course selection. The alternative graduate teacher certification program can also be infused within the MSIS degree for those who desire both state certification and a graduate degree. 

What Students Gain from this Program

Regardless of which disciplines a student chooses, a graduate of the program will be equipped with:

  • A broad, interdisciplinary perspective of knowledge and the capacity to apply integrated knowledge to problem-solving, inquiry and innovation.
  • Analytical skills that cross disciplinary boundaries.
  • Sensitivity to perspectives of various interest groups and contexts, such as social, political, cultural and economic.
  • Research and technical writing skills.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Interdisciplinary Studies Seminar
  • Research Literature and Techniques
  • History and Philosophy of Adult Education
  • Leadership in Adult Education Programs
  • Higher Education in the 21st Century
