Upper-division courses required by the degree plan

Upper-division courses will be selected in collaboration with the program advisor based on the student’s educational goals and a degree plan approved by the Multidisciplinary Studies Advisory Committee. These courses must be completed during or after successful completion of MDS 300. At a minimum the proposed course of study must demonstrate a coherent design; characterized by appropriate breadth, depth, sequencing of courses and synthesis of learning. The design must be clearly linked to the stated educational objectives of the program. Programs of study that appear to be crafted to avoid course sequencing, pre-requisites, or disciplinary coherence will not be approved. Only six (6) credits for internship and/or field work may be applied. With advisor approval, up to three (3) credits from upper-division workshops may be used to satisfy this requirement.
