Frostburg State University’s Master of Education -Interdisciplinary concentration is designed for students who have specific career goals in mind that are not met by FSU’s other M.Ed. concentrations. Students interested in switching career fields, working for community education and/or outreach organizations, teacing in a community college; or developing educational materials and training for a business or other organization may find the interdisciplinary degree best meets their individual educational needs. As a student in this program, you will pursue two different content areas. Working with your advisor, you will design a personal study plan to meet your career goals. The Master of Education Interdisciplinary concentration is not intended to lead to initial or specialized advanced certification for teaching in the public schools.
