The Cross-Disciplinary Studies MS is a unique degree providing students with a flexibility in creating the direction for their program. The degree requires students to complete two 18-credit graduate certificates in different disciplines plus a one-credit capstone in either discipline for a 37-credit master's degree. The composition of a student's capstone committee is determined by the policy and procedures of the discipline in which the capstone is taken.
