Interdisciplinary Graduate Opportunities


In today’s global society, the grand challenges facing us—energy, water, climate, food, health—require the understanding of more than a single discipline to achieve the desired impactful solutions. The intersection of ideas from several disciplines across all of the arts and sciences on intellectual provides the potential to address these grand challenges and organizational issues. Interdisciplinary Studies at Texas Tech University allows graduate students to integrate areas and courses from the existing graduate colleges and programs to best fit their interests and career aspirations that might not be defined in traditional disciplinary boundaries. Popular combinations of disciplines have been formalized into pre-designed program structures. More unique combinations can be created by students in the self-designed program options within the Interdisciplinary Studies Master of Arts (M.A.) and Master of Science (M.S.) degree programs.
