INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES MASTER’S DEGREE PROGRAM WITH EMPHASIS ON ARID LAND STUDIES AND INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT

The International Center for Arid and Semiarid Land Studies (ICASALS) coordinates the Interdisciplinary StudiesMaster of Arts or Master of Science degree program with emphasis on Arid Land Studies and International Development at Texas Tech. The Interdisciplinary Studies program is intended for students who wish to continue education at the graduate level but do not seek specialized training concentrated in a major area. This program is not a substitute for the traditional Master’s degree; rather, it is designed for students with broader interest in several fields or for those whose career goals do not match fully with a single identifiable academic unit or department.
