  • Degree MA
  • Study Level Masters
  • Duration 24 months
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)- Heritage and Social History, 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. The Heritage and Social History focus area will provide a unique opportunity for students to study theoretical and applied issues in heritage and social history using an interdisciplinary approach. Combining the fields of social history and heritage studies, this focus draws on the strengths of the History and Heritage Resource Management programs at Athabasca University to offer an interdisciplinary approach to the study of social traditions and institutions and historical patterns, with an emphasis (but not an exclusive focus) on Canadian history and heritage. 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.
