Participate in an interdisciplinary online master’s program that integrates theories, methods and practices from the arts, humanities and social sciences. With Athabasca University’s Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies (MA-IS)- Canada, North, and the Globe, you will learn to think holistically, critically and reflectively. You will find the connections and points of overlap between specialized and generalized knowledge. You will also learn problem-solving skills and policy-making strategies. Canada is a quintessential Northern nation. Courses address issues having to do with “the North” as a unique socio-political as well as natural region of our planet, encompassing Canada as well as tensions specific to it within the global context. The program explores the North in all its productive ambiguity and unique specificity, and to do so in such a way that brings what was formerly called “Canadian Studies” into the 21st century, thereby making it relevant to the global context of today’s learner. Your program will finish with a final integrated project or capstone paper that will exercise and explore your newly acquired skills and knowledge. You can choose to complete this project in a grouped study capstone course, or through an individual study project that will allow you to: explore a question or issue that’s important to you, relate your research to a work or life situation, and address a community problem.
