SIUE Introduces Master's in Integrative Studies for Fall 2015

July 30, 2015

Southern Illinois University Edwardsville is introducing a master’s in integrative studies that will be available for the fall 2015 semester. The Illinois Board of Higher Education approved the program during June.

Four interdisciplinary studies tracks will be available during fall 2015:

  • Sustainability with focus areas in sociology and environmental science
  • Diversity Training with focus areas in instructional technology, and learning, culture and society
  • Cultural Heritage and Resource Management with focus areas in anthropology, geology and historical studies
  • Organizational Design Thinking with focus areas in applied communication studies and instructional technology

Students can design their own degree if none of the existing programs meet their interests or needs. Graduate students can work with two or more faculty mentors to design an academic plan with a maximum of three focus areas. A carefully designed plan of study will provide a unique combination of skills and knowledge that will be advantageous in today’s ever-evolving job market.

The integrative studies master’s will require the completion of a minimum of 30 hours of advanced course work split between two disciplines and seven hours of a culminating project.
