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)- Writing and New Media, 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. Writing and New Media provides an opportunity to students interested in all aspects of writing, both professional and creative, and explores the ways in which the new media of publication and communication (the internet, the World Wide Web) provide new forms and genres of writing and communication. Students will explore the many ways in which digital multimedia communications change modes of communication, interaction, and publication and, with them, social, political and economic patterns of experience and behavior on a global scale. 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.
