The Association for Interdisciplinary Studies is proud once again to continue our tradition of supporting and publishing surveys of interdisciplinary programs. Following in the footsteps of Alan F. Edwards' Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Programs: A Directory, and Rick Szostak’s Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program Directory, we first presented another piece of the interdisciplinary academic landscape with the publication in Fall 2008 of Jordan Hill's Master's Program Directory. We are now pleased to offer you this updated edition of Jordan Hill's Intentionally Interdisciplinary: Master’s Interdisciplinary Program Directory, 2nd Edition, Fall 2011.
The Association for Interdisciplinary Studies hopes that this Directory will aid prospective graduate students who are seeking information on interdisciplinary graduate education. We also hope that the Directory will be useful to scholars and administrators who wish to know if and where certain sorts of interdisciplinary program exist.
Like the Doctoral Directory, the Master’s Directory provides links to the websites of all the listed programs. In addition to this, we have provided two different ways to search the directory: geographically by state, and also by program type. There is also a new classification system called the “Program Path” being used in this directory that we hope will help users of the directory to compare and gain insights into the various structures of Master’s level interdisciplinary study. We strongly encourage you to read through the “Introduction” (see link below) in order to familiarize yourself with the structure and unique concepts being used in this directory.
