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)- Educational Studies, 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. Educational Studies provides a "critical foundations approach" to understanding educational issues and practices by drawing upon a range of theories and methods from history, sociology, cultural studies, economics, political science, philosophy and psychology. This approach provides viewers with a critical, integrated understanding of the relations between instructors/teachers, students/learners, educational organization(s) and society. 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.
