The Interdisciplinary MEd is a course-based program which provides students with a systematic understanding of knowledge, and a critical awareness of current problems and/or new insights, much of which is at, or informed by, the forefront of their academic discipline, field of study or area of professional practice in two areas.
Students proceed through the MEd following these three easy steps (please scroll down to see a diagram):
Step 1: Students choose from the available topic areas and apply to the Graduate Certificate. Upon the successful completion of the four required half-courses the student earns a Graduate Certificate.
Step 2: Students choose a different topic area, and apply to the Graduate Diploma. Upon the successful completion of the four required half-courses in this program, the student earns a second credential, a Graduate Diploma.
Step 3: Students apply to the Interdisciplinary MEd program. Upon the successful completion of the four required half-courses in this program, the student earns the Interdisciplinary MEd. At this stage, the final four courses ensure that students graduate with research depth.
At the end of the Interdisciplinary MEd, students will have received a Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma and a Master of Education in Interdisciplinary Studies in Education.
