Why Interdisciplinary Studies
****This section of our website is being revised. Check out the video below and be sure to bookmark this page. Come back soon to see new information about the MAIS program at UALR****
The MA in Interdisciplinary Studies program (formerly the MA in Liberal Studies program) is designed for those whose interests are too broad or complex to be covered by one discipline. Through an interdisciplinary approach, students gain the opportunity to study subjects or topics from different perspectives. The program also caters to those individuals whose interests may not exist in a single discipline, allowing the student to create an avenue of research and study that may not have existed before.
