Master of Interdisciplinary Studies (MIS)

Southern Utah University’s new Master of Interdisciplinary Studies degree, now accepting applications, provides an opportunity for students to build a graduate degree from three disciplines, resulting in a unique interdisciplinary experience. Since this 30-credit degree allows you to develop an individualized program of study, you can tailor it to your personal passions and career objectives.

Director's Welcome

David Hatch

Welcome to Interdisciplinary Studies! This program offers students the opportunity to move up or out in a career by tailoring an online, 30-hour course of study from three different disciplines in a thoughtful way.

In addition to the flexibility of designing a course of study from available concentrations our program equips students for graduate work and the job hunt. Our Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies course is writing intensive, helping students to feel confident about their research and writing skills for graduate school; our Capstone/Internship courses provide students the opportunity to create a meaningful final project and networking connections that will help them market themselves and demonstrate problem solving, knowledge, teamwork, and excellent communication to an employer.

This Master’s program is not easy, but it provides options. It provides knowledge and experience. I have been impressed by the quality and creativity of the capstone projects our students have created. MIS Students finish the program with knowledge and a project that are meaningful and tailored to their needs and interests.

Come join us.
