Earn your master's in interdisciplinary studies from Marylhurst

Now accepting students for 2015.

Request more information about this program or any other Marylhurst program.

You could specialize and know a great deal about a single facet of the human experience. You could be a generalist and have a wide field of knowledge. Or you can be a Marylhurst Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies (MAIS) graduate and benefit from both approaches.

51 - 55 quarter-credit master's program

Our MAIS curriculum will challenge you to think critically and deeply, enhancing your leadership skills and vision for life beyond graduate school.

Focus areas and options to meet your career goals

You will explore areas of study without the confinement of typical discipline-bound graduate programs. You may opt to follow a concentrated area of professional study: gerontology, spiritual traditions or organizational and leadership studies. Or you can choose the liberal arts concentration, selecting from all MAIS seminars, to meet your personal and professional goals.

Supportive academic environment

You'll find yourself in an intellectual, supportive community of teachers and learners. Our academic environment is highly interactive, with an average class size of 10 students.

Flexible format

We know you have a busy life — for that reason, MAIS courses are offered in a variety of formats. While a good portion of our classes are held weeknights, with occasional afternoons, we also offer weekend intensives and online classes.
