The individualized Interdisciplinary Master of Education Degree Program is designed for those students who have specific needs not addressed in existing areas of concentration. The interdisciplinary approach allows students to tailor a program specific to their personal and professional goals.
This program is not intended to lead to initial certification or specialized advanced certification.
Applicants to this program must meet initially with the Interdisciplinary program coordinator and then the coordinators of the two departments that are to be part of the individualized Interdisciplinary Program. A study plan with signatures from coordinators from both areas and the Interdisciplinary Program are required.
The student may develop an individualized, interdisciplinary program of study through the cooperation of at least two departments with courses approved for graduate credit. Approval of the study plan is required by the chairs of the departments involved and the Chair of the Department of Educational Professions. The study plan (available in the Office of Graduate Services) is the means by which your interdisciplinary degree program is documented and routed for required approvals. Upon completion of the study plan form with the necessary signatures, it must be submitted to the Office of Graduate Services.
