M.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies
LIU Post offers both the Master of Arts and Master of Science in
Interdisciplinary Studies. The Interdisciplinary Studies program (IDS)
is designed for those students whose career or educational goals are not
reflected in one of LIU Post’s established graduate programs. An
individual course of study, subject to the approval of the IDS Faculty
Committee, will be developed by the student with the assistance of
appropriate graduate advisors and the program coordinator. Students may
incorporate courses from any of the five LIU Post colleges and schools.
The student’s plan of study must be approved before full matriculation
In addition to designing a unique interdisciplinary degree,
students can also elect to follow several other interdisciplinary
concentrations: American Studies, Environmental Studies, Liberal Arts,
Literacy Studies, Museum Studies, Public History/Archives and Records Management, Public History/Non-profit Management and Social Studies among others.
A total of 36 credits is required for the degree, of which 6 credits are in thesis work
