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)- Equity 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. Equity Studies is a disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and multi-disciplinary approach to social justice and inequality. Ranging across the local, regional, national, and global, Equity Studies explores inequalities between and among humans that are based on socially produced categories of geography, religion, race, gender, disability, age, class, and sexuality. It also includes issues related to inter-species equality, environmental justice, and intergenerational equality. 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.
