Interdisciplinary (Master of Education)
This degree program is for students who wish to pursue an individually designed, integrated program of study. The program draws primarily from graduate courses in Educational Leadership, Counseling, Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration, and Educational Studies but may include courses from other departments within the College and the University.
Applicants should have a clear understanding of how the Interdisciplinary Program will serve their career goals. For this reason, major emphasis in admissions is placed upon the applicant's Statement of Purpose. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact Professor Robert Nash (Robert.Nash@uvm.edu) prior to making application for admission. Detailed information about the program and admissions criteria will be supplied upon request.
A minimum of 36 credits is required for completion of the program. The program is ideally suited for persons whose personal and professional development requires a combination of course work not readily available in other graduate programs, or for individuals who plan to assume new or emerging roles in the fields of education or social and human services.
