Master’s Degree Programs

The graduate degree programs offered through the College of Transdisciplinary Studies are for students who are interested in creating an individualized academic program with a strong education foundation, and with applied, experiential training that integrates valued workplace standards, experience, and past academic work. They are designed for students whose academic interests are broad and transdisciplinary and whose career interests require diverse and transdisciplinary exposure.
