Boise State University offers a Master of Science degree program in Interdisciplinary Studies. In consultation with faculty, students may combine courses from more than one department to create an individualized program of educational experience. The program is not a substitute for a traditional master’s degree; rather, it is intended for students with broader interests in several fields or those whose career goals do not match fully with a single, identifiable academic unit or department. Emphasis is placed on continued intellectual and cultural development in a constantly changing society where new intellectual and career interests may extend over several traditional specializations.
Students with a primary interest in biology have in the past successfully created Interdisciplinary Master’s programs by merging biology with public affairs, with chemistry, and with geosciences. For more information, please refer to the graduate catalog.
